First Spring VIsit to the Bee Yard
The bee yard looked very much the same today as it did when I was last there in the fall. There were small piles of dead bees out front, as expected. I swept away.
No bees were flying but because of the cold I hadn't expected to see them. I wish I had come out on some of the sunnier days were had when temperatures were much warmer. Luck would have it that I wasn't available on those days.
At home I have woodenware that I haven't nailed together yet. In the kitchen sit buckets of wax waiting for me to make candles.
Oh yes, it's time all right. Time to consider the bees.
