Warm weather

We had 73 degree weather today and the bees were out taking advantage of the nice day to do cleansing and orientation flights.

I also took the initiative to add about a 8"x8" pollen patty to the center of each hive and they must have been hungry because after about 15 seconds the patty was covered in bees eating it. I need to go and feed the other hives.

I also found 2 hives on craigslist for sale and got a really good deal on them. The guy had not messed with them for over a year (or so he said). Lets hope the bees were truly as advertised and are healthy enough to make it through winter.
