Quick Peek Bee-Check
Quietly lifted the lids of both hives today to check on the fondant situation, wanting to make sure they're ok until the nectar & pollen flows get cracking in spring. Only a speck left on one crown board so will make some more to keep them topped up. Won't bother with making icing flowers though, just a nice fat roll of white no-nonsense fondant!
Both hives have been flying occasional bees on mild days, even when it's raining, so it's good to see they're still alive after the wet August and c-c-cold winter.
