Another season upon us.

All my colonies were alive at Christmas time when they received their annual dribble of oxalic acid. Today they are flying well after a mild winter. It’s 6 degrees outside; bright and sunny (that’s c not f !). The over-wintered mini-nucs are both alive which is a bonus. The out apiary near the coast doesn’t have any pollen coming in yet; inland some pale yellow pollen has started to arrive. 🙂
