Decided to check on colonies to see if they are coming into Spring in good shape. 2 of the 3 are doing OK and 1 looks to be struggling. Topped up feed for 2 colonies as they were low on stores.
Weather is very variable – some very sunny days but temperatures are still cold 7-8C most days. Also overnight temperatures getting down to freezing. Forecast is to start warming up.
plenty of blossom – pear, quince nearly finished. Cherry still around and hawthorn is out.
