The change of season is evident in the beeyard also. The hives, which are normally a buzz of frantic activity, are very quiet. The bees move slowly and very few are flying around. No smoker was required today as everyone was so docile.
It was cold work on this chilly day and our hands were ice cubes when we finished. A stop for coffee at Tim Horton's gave us something warm to hold onto for the drive home.
