Still in my first year, my 4 hives over wintered well and are very busy on sunny days. I don't see any blooms yet but the bees are bringing in pollen on their legs.
I just bought three more hives from a landscaper who did not take good care of them and the pollen has molded in the lower deep. I removed them from the hives. I have ordered three NUCs from three different bee vendors. for spring delivery. I have much to learn and am looking forward to reading your posts.
