The beehive is in full sun now (the house blocks the sun in the early morning), and I thought I'd go out and see what they were up to. To my surprise, I saw some bees bringing back full baskets of pollen! Look at the image above and you'll see a bee with legs packed with pollen (click the image for a larger version). That's what bees are supposed to do!
I wouldn't expect much pollen around at this time of year, but then again, my kids are suffering from allergies (caused by pollen). I don't see too many flowers open yet, but apparently the bees are very good at finding them.
I can't wait to get in and see what they've done!
