Busy, Busy, Busy!

We have had a few very nice days recently with temperatures reaching highs of about 15C.The bees have been flying frequently and returning loaded with nectar and pollen. The pollen was light yellow and orange and can be seen on the rear legs of some of the bees in the following video.

A brief check in the hive on Friday showed that they have plenty of pollen and honey stored with fresh nectar being brought in. Great news as this means they are raising young. The new season begins and all seems well with their world!

I could happily sit and watch them coming and going all day, but I had to drag myself away to make a start on the garden or we'll be short of vegetables this year! I could still hear them working though.....
