It has been a very warm and wet winter so far for us here in South Florida. It is already Dec 20th and we are still in the upper 70’s – 80 F (upper 20’s C). With all the warmer temperatures and rain we have been getting, there are plenty of flowering plants and grasses all around. Our bees have a good supply of pollen and honey stored up.
We noticed a variety of pollen colors and it looks so pretty in the comb – vibrant oranges, yellows and white.
Then we saw this little bee full of pollen on her legs – she was certainly busy collecting. See the white puffs.
And then we were graced with seeing our wonderful queen from this hive.
Next week we will be visitng our family in Greece. I am hoping I will be able to post some pictures of Greek bees and beekeeping practices there.
Happy Holidays everyone!
