I’ve been keeping bees for 10 years, and I don’t remember an April like it.
The warm dry weather here in Devon, has definitely benefited the bees. They have been out and about every day. The blossom is flourishing and producing the good stuff …. nectar and pollen.
In the garden, the old apple trees, are buzzing. The buzz from the trees provides a background hum to the whole garden. It literally sounds like a swarm of bees is somewhere settling.
The hives are bursting. The workforce has been busy taking advantage of nature’s bounty.
The bees have been so productive that the hives are filled with honey and I have had to make more room for them to store their harvest.
All I need to do now is manage them from swarming and taking their produce away!
