Ida and the Bees

We've had a lot of rain - 3" yesterday mid afternoon. I'll check this morning and I feel sure the rain gauge is full. Lots of rain and crazy animals in the house.

The bees are fine but definitely not flying in this weather. Thank goodness they have plenty of food.

The swarm hive box was not painted and it looks a mess - it's okay but just won't last as long as the others.

Hive #4 - all the girls are inside their house which is where I headed after taking these photos.
