Pollen!

We have light yellow pollen  going into the Lucium. Go girls, go!

Feed

I put four pounds of sugar on the Lucium last week, at $2.09 a bag. The weather has been so warm, I figured it was safe. Then yesterday we had a cold snap where it did not get above freezing. I'll have to take a look tomorrow to make sure that the feeder is still intact. I wonder what the freezing point of 1:1 sugar-water syrup is?

Absconded

We had a nice warm day today, so I did a quick inspection and discovered that the Josephium and Salomium had both absconded.

I dosed the Lucium with oxalic acid dribble.
