cold bees

despite the weather reports, garden thermometer read 30F this morning!!  Bees were huddled in a few different balls – two separate balls in what was left in the original package. one ball huddled around the opening to the feeder and couldn’t see the rest, presume they were huddled at the top of the hive, hopefully around the queen.

Went back out later once the temps had started to climb and there was some action around the hive and inside.  still two balls of bees in the package.  If they do not come out today, will have to be sure to dump them early evening so they make their way into the hive for the night.

did keep the can of syrup, will use that if and when they exhaust what I put out in the feeder
