2012 has been unusually warm and we've even had some rain. The pond looks like an oval again instead of 2 ponds.
I check the 3 west hives. 2 are doing fine, 1 seemed to be dwindling, they had honey so I moved frames of it closer to where the bees were clustered. I didn't see a queen or brood in this one. The other 2 had brood.
This week the highs are only in the 50's, so not much flying for a while.
