Busy bees and yellow pollen
Yes, I know, pollen is often yellow, but this is bright yellow. I think it is daffodil, or perhaps Forsythia (sp?).
Both out-hives, a mile from home and a couple of miles apart, are bringing it in.
It's a lovely sunny day, but quite cool at about 11-12 c.
They are munching their way though the apifonda - especially the aggressive lot in the field.
All three colonies are doing well. Which one to raise queens from, that is now the question? Certainly not the aggressive ones. We will see. More to follow on this subject.
