Pollen, Pollen everywhere and I thought it was winter

Hi All,

just thought I would share an interesting observation with everyone. Even after the ridiculously cold week and some bloody big frosts my girls are bringing in bucket loads of pollen, and I mean bucket loads. I have been observing my hive for the last couple of days and a lot of pollen of various colours is coming in. Anyone would think it was spring.

I had a similar experience last weekend, the pollen was absolutely pouring into my hives! Will try and grab some photos this weekend.

Took this photo today of a swarm I hived last week. Nice variety of pollen in the frame (click to enlarge).

This was just the other day. The colours of spring.
