If all of these things weren't reason enough to have beautiful memories and hopes for the future, we're really rooting for our honey bees.
There is evidence of spring (finally) everywhere. By the time I'm posting this, the maples have already let their seeds to the wind.
I apologize that the following photo is blurry. Maybe you can pretend there's some mystical sort of filter on the lens to make it all look magical... In reality, it's just taken with a shorter lens and cropped so you can see this bee, legs loaded with pollen!
We're going to add the next level of deep supers (the boxes on the hive) to the hives this week so the bees can start capping up some honey for the winter. They sure have a lot of work to do! In the meantime, we'll be enjoying the Minnesota summer. I look forward to getting you an update soon.
