A good day to fly

Winter honeybees

The outside world thinks it's spring. There are chickweed and speedwell and even a few dandelion flowers open. The wood frogs started calling in the woods (although they Chickweed flowershaven't moved to the puddles yet). And Kayla informed me her hydrangea bush got so confused it leafed out.

Saturday, the bees got into the act too. Workers from both hives were out flying, although I'm not sure they made it far enough to find the flowers for a quick snack.

Since winter is far from over, I anticipate we're all going to have a shock to our systems when cold weather comes to call. But, for now, I'll take the advice of the bees and enjoy the beauty of the day.
