And then there were two...

This has been a rough winter for the bees. We've had many cold cold days, with record snow falls:

During the winter, we had some "visitors" who we helped out with some bird feed:

We also had as many as 6 squirrels also enjoying the winter feasts.

In the middle of February I had a chance to check on the hives. I found that the pink hive had succombed to the winter - it was dead. I believe it died from cold, and not starvation.

I added more candy to the two hives which remained. Let's see if they survive...


  1. That snow is amazing. Not good for bees but nice to look at.

  2. Those possums must have been really thankful to get some nutritious food!
