The beez are out flying around!!!

This is the backyard beez, not the horsefarm hives. These I had wrapped, wincingly, in asphalt-impregnated felt, and I had piled dry leaves in the empty top box on top of the queen excluder in DIY imitation of the quilt box of a Warré hive. And I hoped for the best. Oh, and I had put a mouse-excluder in the entrance, and poked a couple of holes in the hive.

I had only seen one bee outside all this time, and was concerned for them. But you don't open a hive in winter.

So today, it is sunny, still, and in the high 20s. And all the girls are outside! They're surviving!
