I do believe it's spring.
Even here in Oklahoma, it's early,
but it's welcome!
Signs are everywhere on the farm.
700 newly planted daffodils, tulips and hyacinths
are pushing their way up from the ground
and basking in the warm sun.
Crickets are chirping.
Flies are buzzing.
There are even a few ladybugs in the garden.
The most welcome sight is the flurry of activity
around the bee hives.
They have been busy bringing in pollen
which is a sign that there are baby bees to feed.
(see the white bundles on the bee's sides in the photo above?)
Each of the hives has already built a new comb.
Since the first winter is the hardest for a bee colony,
we are very thankful the bees made it through til spring!
