In The Garden

It's been a hard week for the bees. There are a great number of new dead bees.

I found twelve dead drones. I had only seen one before and it was different looking than these ones. I don't speak "bee" so I don't really know what's up. The optimstic interpretation is that with this long bout of cold weather, they've been holed up in the hive. They've had to work to keep warm and not been able to forage as much. So this could be something like 'storm losses' and hopefully not disease.
