For the past two days the bees have been extremely quiet in the morning. I think it is because of our cool and damp Seattle weather. Also, the clouds have been covering the sun, so they don't get as good of start in the morning. But, by 11-12:00 the bees start to move. In the afternoon there were about one-hundred bees outside. It was crazy! This night I changed their sugar water that I use to feed the bees. They had nearly finished all three bottles! The bees sure love sugar. Hope all is well in the hive.
