Sweet Sweet Success!!!
After months of cold winds, severe frosts and week after week of below zero temperatures and snow, the bees decided to reveal their success story!!
Once temperatures reached double figures they began to spring clean the hive and we breathed a sigh of relief! They had made it and winter was officially over!!
Joshua and his old (but still young!!) form teacher, Paul,
opened and checked and cleaned each hive.
The queen in green (she's marked with a green dot, see below) was still present.
With the recent warm weather and the huge activity at the hive we're hoping for an early harvest of honey, we can't wait!!
