Washington beehives in the snow

Mark Adams up in Arlington, Washington writes in.
"I was checking out your new blog and saw the picture showing pollen starting to come in. I just had to run outside and take a picture. This winter has been much colder than usual. It takes pretty tough bees to survive this damp cold climate."

Thanks Mark, this reminds us just how adaptable honeybees are, able to live anywhere from the tropics to near the arctic circle. I hope Spring comes soon and the bees do well this year.

If anyone else has pictures or news of how their bees are doing, please send them in, we'd love to hear from you.
