Taking down syrup

Saturday, 27 May 2017

A beautiful day to get lots of outdoor tasks finished. After a week and a half of rain, it has dried out so the garden was finished today.

Hive A emptied their feeders, so after I replaced the duck cloth on both, I filled the feeders on both hives though there was still ~1/3 in Hive B in each bottle.

Lots of activity and pollen coming in - there are purple flowers all over the land and the workers are enjoying them.

Despite neglect, they're thriving

We were in Europe for 2 1/2 weeks, I came back to two active hives, the large one with empty feeders and the small one with 2/3 empty feeders.
I filled them both.
All is good.
