Timing is everything. Within a week after we set up the new beehives the bees were given the treat of an abundance of large apple blossoms on 3 apple trees and a double load of pear blossoms too! the fragrance is amazing!
We finally managed to avoid the late spring snow storm that happens often here. The fruit trees that lost all their blossoms to a storm last year built up enough energy for an incredible bounty this year!
What a great way to start off the new bees! Hopefully this impressive display makes them feel there is no reason to swarm and find another home like a couple of our previous hives. We really need the bees for pollination.
