keeping the buzzz


IMG_0163 (1024x768)December 27, the weather is mild here in N. AZ, and the sun is shining strongly on the hive, making the surface temperature nearly 80F!!

Peeked into the hive earlier, and see the comb is golden colored, looks like there are capped honey cells in there – although hard to tell.  Have been keeping the feeder going, about a pint a week.  On mild days like today they are busy taking from the feeder and exploring.  When its cold, they stay inside and use their stores.  A day like today allows them to replenish those stores.

We start having blooms by mid-late february, so we’re doing well at the hive.
