Bees no more

All our bees have died, we only have one hive and Karen was showing it to two prospective beekeepers yesterday, when she opened it they were all dead, they were fine a week ago but she thinks the have succumbed to the sub zero weather possibly last Sunday night when it was -10 C, It’s a shame this week has been a lot warmer. I know they are only bees but we are both very sad, Karen is already sourcing a new supply and it is hopeful we will get some soon, alas there will be no Lafitole honey this year.

After the frost it felt a bit like spring yesterday, some of the bulbs are coming up and I was in the garden tidying the hedges burning branches and brambles.  It rained overnight and it’s cold again today so it feels like winter again.
