We’ve had a very good nectar and pollen flow since the package bees were started in Colony B and Colony C.  Nice temperatures in the high 80 degree range, as well.  I’m feeding sugar syrup, both regular and medicated with natural essence oils.  Foragers have been busy returning with their pollen baskets full.  We’ve had dry weather for a couple of weeks now, but this morning we awoke to early morning thundershowers.  Not a lot of rain, but enough to freshen and water vegetation.  We will most likely get a bit more rain today and temperatures are anticipated to reach 91 degrees.  Nectar and pollen will be in abundance!  Some of the little foragers are already trying to fly between the occasional raindrops and it’s only 7:00 A.M.  The next few days should be everything a bee colony could ask for!
