No wonder my eyes are itchy...

My eyes started itching about a week ago and sure enough, the girls are coming in loaded with pollen!   There isn't any visible budding on the trees here yet.  At least, not that I can see from the ground..maybe it's the maple buds?  Glad to see them coming in with leg baskets full!  Welcome Spring!!

Just found your blogs and love both. I had bees and loved them. My first hive was installed at dusk and I got up before dawn the next morning to check on them. A lone guard bee was standing in the middle of the hive entrance making sure no marauders invaded. It was fun to watch them land with so much pollen. Off balance, they'd roll over and then right themselves and stagger into the hive to be "unloaded". Sorry to be so chatty..enjoy your bees!
