Nice pics!
I went out today to have a look at wrapping the hives and putting some roof insulation in.... But the hives are in a sun-trap at the south end of the garden, the "bee thermometer" on the *north* side of the Apiary shed wall was reading 20C, and the bees were as busy as ever, foraging like mad. Mostly fuschia, iceplant and the inevitable ivy. Plus, I have some autumn crocuses which they seem to like. So I left them for another week: couldn't get close to the hive without streams of busy bees crashing into me on their way in!

Hi.

Yep they're all doing fine.

Picture was taken a bit quick on the middle one,,,, just a little bit in their flight path.
They are the first ones out in the morning.... Probably warmest. They trot down the tube to see what its like outside.
