Bees & Blooms

April has been so exciting! The warmth and timely rains have brought incredible life back to the farm and the plants are growing incredibly fast. Our surviving beehive has been gaining strength as well, bringing back pollen from at least three plants (dandelions, crabapples, another unidentified), and I’m eagerly thinking about splitting the hives later this month.

For flowers, the daffodils are now finished (and nearly all cut back to allow the plants to focus on bulb creation) and the first allium have -just- split to show hints of color. The larkspur is behind where I expected, but perhaps that’s the cold winter.
