Daddy daughter time at it's finest! 
The apprentice was out inspecting her bees with the head beekeeper this afternoon. She was very proud of her little pets! 
The hive is looking great and we're hoping that they continue to thrive 😊❤

Just in time before forecasted snow fall. Spring feeding of our honeybee colonies with sugar syrup and protein/pollen patties to help them through unpredictable April.

It's April Fool's Day!  Hopefully no one pulls a cruel prank on you today - especially given the uncertainty everyone is feeling!  What isn't a joke is the contest we are running!  See our post from March 30 - deadline to enter is April 3rd.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are a few notable pranks from around the world courtesy of @readersdigest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Best Pranks Around the World⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
France: According to Le Parisien, in 1986, the Eiffel Tower was going to be dismantled and rebuilt inside the new Euro Disney park.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Denmark: In 1965, a Copenhagen newspaper reported that Parliament had passed a law that all dogs be painted white to improve road safety because they could then be seen clearly at night.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Norway: In 1987, after reading that the government was planning to distribute 10,000 litres of wine confiscated from smugglers, hundreds of citizens turned up carrying empty bottles and buckets.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Great Britain: In 1980, those serial pranksters at the BBC announced that Big Ben, London’s historic clock tower, would undergo a face-lift and become digital to keep up with the times. Enraged callers flooded the station with complaints.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Canada: In 2008, WestJet airlines advertised its overhead cabin bins as “among the most spacious of any airline” and said it would charge passengers an extra $12 to use these “sleeper cabins.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Germany: In 2009, BMW ran an ad promoting its new “magnetic tow technology.” The invention enabled drivers to turn off their engine and get a “free ride” by locking onto the car ahead via a magnetic beam.

Too much COVID-19 info in my head, too much pandemic planning for work in my head, too much on the news about it all. Needed an art break. I just put some last details on these two sides of our second bee hive. One more side underway. I’m grateful for the distraction. I’m grateful no one I know has symptoms and I’m hoping for the best for all of you and the world. In the meantime, I will let art take me away for a while.

The citrus from the lime paired with the honey is the perfect combination. 🥧

On this week's episode of "BeesAreTheDaysOfOurhives" both hives are alive and eagarly wait for spring. This picture is "Queen Jennifer's Hive" eating some sugar stores. "Queen Shirley's Hive" is still eating their honey stores and haven't gone up into the sugar but I could hear a gentle rumble inside the hive. Come on spring!

Update on our winter queen bank that we moved with us from Squamish. In October we set up some colonies containing multiple caged queens. The main goal is to overwinter a bunch of queens with limited resources, and have mated queens early in the spring.

In this bank, there’s a nice big cluster with lovely calm bees caring for the caged queens. 10 of the 12 queens are still looking great, the two that died did so within the first two weeks. The girls have plenty of honey, but we like to provide emergency sugar stores directly above the frames, and you can see they’ve picked away at them but not really needed it so far.

Later in spring when we can safely make splits from our stronger colonies we will break up this bank and give these queens each their own colony.

This has been a very interesting project for us, and a great way to have some mated queens on hand for early season!

See our other posts on this topic at #gbhqueenbanking

We’re happy to answer questions on this- it’s a relatively new technique that is seeing a small resurgence in Canada at least. It was trialled in the 90’s at @simonfraseru with good success. We’re thrilled to be contributing to to body of knowledge on this subject-it could have big impacts for northern beekeeping.

This is a photo I took last fall from one of our bee hives. Our girls can't wait to get out once the weather warms up.  We use the beeswax from our hives to make Nourished by Nature lip balms.
