Bees!

The weather here has been freakishly, ridiculously warm, so we checked on the bees yesterday.

They've been kept sheltered from
The winter winds by some toasty warm hay bales.

You can see where the "morgue bees" have been doing their job by taking out the dead bees over the winter. Cool, huh?

They seem to be doing ok! The weather is so warm they've been out and about... But there's no food sources, so we gave them some supplemental food just in case. It's supposed to be in the 60s and 70s for at least the next week!! Crazy stuff.
