I’m standing in the yard right now blogging and it’s 65F, sunny, with little wind.
I’m looking at the Cowper deadout and noticed a few bees flying in and out. They are probably the foragers who survived while the rest of the colony froze. I was hoping a swarm moved in but that’s too good to be true right now as it’s still too early in the season.
I just saw a bee fly by me. Perhaps it’s from someone elses hives or a feral nearby. The bees that I’m seeing are working this dwarf hibicus that’s has been flowering since Summer.
