Spring Cleaning

Each spring, beekeepers face the gargantuan task of unwrapping, opening up, and cleaning out the over-wintered hives. There's a bit of anxiety involved as one never knows what surprises await. Fortunately, this spring the bees seem for the most part to have survived our very-light winter successfully. The hives were abuzz with activity and happy to be given a bit more freedom.
Most were already out and about gathering pollen. This one is shown on my leather glove (don't want you to think I have alligator skin!)
You can see them busily heading in and out the front entrance with the yellow pollen sacs on their legs stuffed full.
What a relief to have this big job done.
If only I had my spring cleaning done at home... *-)
