At lunchtime, the snow that fell last night in central Vermont was melting away in the warm sun. My bees were out again, not as many as on Sunday but they were definitely out. They weren't just buzzing around the hive or landing in warm places to sun - they were on a mission! I watched from the deck above them and I could see them against the snow in the fields - they were flying off in different directions far out of sight. I noticed some flying down to bare spots on the lawn, presumably to gather minerals from the soil? They certainly don't need to fly anywhere to get water and there isn't anything blooming around here yet. My best guess for the long distance flyers - propolis gathering??? Any thoughts here?
