Spring bees

  The temps soared to the mid fifties yesterday, so I quickly  cooked up some candy for the bees.  I ran it out to the hive before work, and it was a gorgeous thing to see all the  bees taking their cleansing flights. Keep your fingers crossed that this hive remains as healthy as it currently looks. 
    I actually had to put on the bee hat with the netting  in order to get the candy into the hive.  They were  very curious and were flying all around my head and hands. There is nothing creepier than having a bee get into your hair - you can feel it walking around on your scalp, trying to find a way out, but you cannot freak out or she will get scared and sting.  
   Near 60 degrees today, and tomorrow the prediction is for rain and snow and a forty degree temperature drop overnight.  I love March!
