We lost our Bees !
After the first of the snows and frosts,the bees were fine,and on the odd days afterwards, when the sun showed its face,some of them came out for a fly around.
The last cold frosts did it !
We fed them the usual fondant which we thought was keeping them happy,but took the top off to investigate when we became aware that none had been seen .
There was mildew in the hive,and all the bees were dead .
Daughter Adele took the hive,just as we found it,to a meeting last night,to discuss the problem with the other members of the bee asociation so now I am waiting to hear what was said about our failure.
We are quite sad.
