Our fall flowers are in full swing, and I think we are getting a little bit of nectar coming in based on how happy the bees seem.  :thumbsup:

Observing the front entrances yesterday, the bees were finding nectar somewhere.  If the aroma from the hives smell like dirty gym socks, I will know if it's golden rod.  We had rain and hail on Sunday, so the goldenrod is probably producing some nectar now.

This is where I'm at today.  I see full pollen baskets, but it's hard to tell if it's maple pollen or chicken feed dust.  :-\



I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

:D  Either one is possible.
My bees can be seen at the bird bath too.  I always take that as a good sign there are eggs in need of high moisture to hatch.
