Long, hard winter for the bees.

The cold killed many honeybees this year. Some directly. Others starved because it was too cold to move from their cluster in the center of the hive to reach the honey in the edges.

We made the trek out to our hives this afternoon in knee deep snow and bright sunshine.

Only two of our five hives have bees as of March. We are very happy to have the two that made it through this cold.
