Dandelion’s Galore , No more

Dandelions

Cutting the Dandelions

I have been holding off cutting the Dandelion infested front lawn so that the bees could have some natural food whilst nothing much out there is in bloom. My last hive check showed the colonies where doing real well, over double the size i had started with so the dandelions must have helped.

Now the cherry trees,willow, tulips and more are in bloom i decided it was time to cut the Dandelions …i mean lawn. last year someone sent me a quote “A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.” and i thought of it as i mowed the lawn and stopping as i saw honey bees in front of me waiting for them to move on before i proceeded . i had been wondering why they where not going to seed so fast but as i drove around i saw that there was about 10 that where closed and ready to open as seed for every one flowering …oh my!

The next hive check is later this week so i am anxious to see how they are doing now
