Last year we had a fabulous spring, long and warm and wet. Spring is supposed to be a real season like that. Many years we have a spring season that seems to last for one week, straight from winter to hot and dry.

This year it's been cold with a series of late snowstorms (as all of you in the north east already know). As a result my anticipation re my girls has been building day by day.

I checked this morning as the forecast was for a high of 4 degrees above freezing (that's about 37 F). With my South facing hive in a protected spot (and with a couple of hours of reflected sunlight this aft) I was optimistic that they might finally get some respite.

I checked them just before dark when I returned from work. The white snow from this morning now looks like this! Smiley

The color is a good sign...is that what they mean when they say "don't eat the yellow snow"?

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
