It reached 60 degrees today, and there was much coming and going in both hives, including much coming with full pollen baskets.

I gave the Benedictium its spring inspection. I saw no brood in the lower body, but much honey, so I did a body reverse. I assume that the upper body held the queen and the brood. The feeder pail was empty so I replaced it with another 4 pounds of sugar mixed into water. That's another $2.00.

It should get even warmer tomorrow, and I'll inspect the Josephium then.

The water station seems to be a big hit. There are lots of bees there. They really like the big sponges and the cinder block.
