This isn't an urgent question, but I am curious: I swear that the last two days when I've gone to fill the feeder (didn't make it big enough), that I can smell the sweet scent of beeswax from about 15 feet away. Is that possible when the hive was only started a week ago? I haven't done the first full inspection yet, but I've seen some very big looking comb (TBH) already. I've read that beekeepers can smell the hive, but am wondering if maybe I'm imagining it:D. I hope not -- the scent is truly marvelous!

You're not imagining it. Nothing quite like the sweet aroma of nectar being cured during a flow.

I definitely got the sweet smell the other day also and the girls are bringing in tons of pollen . Could we be smelling the pollen I wouldn't think there is a flow in my area going on now , there is nothing in bloom.
