Saturday morning my Perone hive swarmed. I've never seen it before and it was amazing. There was a column of bees swirling like a tornado 15 to 20 feet across and 40 feet or more high. I wish they would have moved into my vacant Warre hive, but I'm still very grateful to have seen it.

I started it in Spring of 2015, so this was the first winter it's been through. It really was wonderful. I've never seen them swarm before.
 
This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. Now it's a tiny ad:
