They’re alive!

So excited! We have been listening to the bees, putting our ears against the box, to ensure they are still in there and they are.

They're alive! I can hear them,but I wanted to see them.

Yesterday they cleaned house and dumped lots of dead bees outside, so we knew there was new brood doing the work.

Buried deep but doing well. Cleaned house on a warmer day.

It was really good to see the bees finally emerge for a winter day breather. I’ve been out to them 3 times today hoping, love the reward.

Next nice day and they get some more sugar to carry them through. I lifted the lid just to peek and they have been eating it; plain bag of sugar worked.

I sat for 1/2 hour in the snow listening to the activity in the hive, they are so cool.

Bee fix done for today.
