Hive Update

I zipped by our hives this afternoon.

Given the rainy afternoon, I wasn't surprised to find things relatively quiet.

(That's our deserted hive entrance, above)
It's a bit depressing to see the colony members that haven't made it through the winter piled outside the hive. A mass bee graveyard.

It'll be interesting to see if both our hives pull through. We were pretty worried about Blue Moon going into winter and things are looking downright desolate in that hive's vicinity. I saw a few girls emerging from Mud Honey Hive so there are a few signs that not all is lost. Yet.
