Honey Bee Collecting Cherry Blossom pollen in April North Devon UK - Chilcotts Farm

Bees are out and about

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a couple of bees flying from the hive and returning with pollen. It looked like cherry blossom pollen, perhaps from the blackthorn that had started to flower in the hedge rows.

Anyway, the last couple of days, which have been very warm and bright, the bees have been flying and coming back with loads of pollen.  In addition, the cherry and plum blossom in the orchard is covered in bees.

Hopefully the weather will remain kind to the bees, and this year’s fruit trees will be well pollenated and produce a bumper harvest of fruit.

      We are so pleased too! I think, sensibly, they must have been deep in the hive most of the winter.
