Beautiful day...

Highs in the 50's, bright and sunny, and the girls are working the feeders. Happy to report the orange hive was able to handle the 3 nights of below freezing temps that hit us suddenly. Hopefully they'll be able to store enough syrup and make it through winter with a borrowed honey super from the white hive. The white hive and orange hive have a good amount of activity at the entrance but not much from the blue (15 or so hanging on the porch interested in something) or the stained hive. I made a fresh batch of 2:1 last night and added the juice from 2 lemons to lower the pH of the 4 gallons of syrup when it cooled.
