 The more bubbly, extended brood is drone brood, the hive needs workers  -not drones at this point.

I found a little more of that than I wanted to see.IMG_0129

    lot's of nectar, but not a surplus amount of capped honey

 Sharing a couple of snapshots of a recent investigation of my beehive.  

They seem to be doing just fine - not especially great, but not anything to really worry about either.  

There is evidence of brood, nectar, honey and plenty of bees. I am content and eager to follow the development of this colony of bees throughout the summer.

I hope you enjoy tagging along!
