March 7, 2010

Today my bees were very active outside the hive. In the late morning it seemed they were trying out their wings within a few feet of the hive. As the day warmed, bees were out searching and many were out in my pastures. I saw a few bees with what could have been pollen on their legs entering the hive. They did not have much of this substance, but what they had was a tan dirty yellow. I did see some chickweed in bloom against the house, and though I do not have crocus, people tell theirs are out. Inside the hive the bees were making a buzzing sound that reminded me of an overloaded electrical circuit...I did not look in to see what the bees were doing so loudly, as I just felt it best not to bother them. Seems that they were doing pretty well by themselves!

  1. I went back to check my hive today and thought that I saw a bee entering the hive with its pockets full. I said NAH! to myself. But after seeing your post I guess there was something going on there.
