May has brought the bees to a shuddering halt. After the warm April where the bees were building nicely, this month has been cool and the bees have done little. A few have looked to swarm and the Rape has yet to bring any surplus honey (though that is not a bad thing to me!). I do hope the weather changes though or I fear another bleak summer for the bees.
