Illustration Friday: Suspense
The suspense of whether or not the bees will make it through the winter is just about killing me.
I worry every year..
This year a little more so. The winter has been mild.
Warm ~ cold ~ warm ~ cold.
They get confused, think it is Spring, start to work and then freeze when it gets cold again.
I had my ear to the hives on the last warm day we had. There were a few that were silent.
I hope at least one hive makes it through. We have ordered a few new starts for spring though, just in case.
I sat outside to sketch this today. It was 37 degrees.
The illustration is a little brief, but my fingers were getting numb.
I just wanted to sit with the bees..
