I’d like to be able to tell you that Spring is finally here, but wouldn’t hold my breath just yet! She has been rather shy this year, taking her time to come out. Today the sun is shining and that makes me happy 🙂
The bees are enjoying the warmer days and are busy starting the season off, with the Queen being conditioned by the workers, putting on some muscles for her big spring brood laying. She often ends up ‘putting on some weight’ growing in size by about a centimetre from her winter figure. This is to make sure the Queens’ body can cope with the rigours of spring and summer – laying up to 2000 eggs a day! That is a lot of babies – 2 was enough for me 😉
The chickens are back on the lay, the local moorhens have tiny floofballs and the magpies are about to fledge already! The flowers are out and trees have new growth. Paradise, someone has to do it.
