Bees and Blooms
Spring has sprung at the apiary and there is lots to do. I love this time of year. Once winter has passed and the first signs of spring appear it is time for bees. For me spring always becomes official with work in the bee yard. Checking on hives and determining which ones survived the winter. Cleaning up hives in preparation for any replacements. Then the arrival of Bee packages and bees going in hives. Soon after I begin to watch and survey as plants start to bloom providing food for my precious bees. What could be finer than the bees and blooms of springtime to usher in a season of fruit, food, fertility and hope.
