R.I.P Hive Mary

Sad day today. 
We went out to inspect our hive, only to find very little of it left. A month ago it was doing well.  Then, about 2 weeks ago we noticed that the hive was not as active.  The hive seemed smaller, and the bees were more agitated than usual. Today, about 100 bees remain.  We will have to wait to spring to try again.
The busy bee has no time for sorrow.
~ William Blake

A colony of bees consists of 20,000-60,000 honeybees and one queen.

"Unique among all God's creatures, only the honeybee improves the environment and preys not on any other species."
~ Royden Brown
