Both queens are out and the bees seem to be settling in nicely. The weather has been a bit up and down, but they are flying about, checking out their new territory on nice days. (I have captioned the images for my niece's school class).
The bees arrived on Sunday. There were about 25 people waiting at the pickup location for their bees, and they all looked like it was Christmas and their birthdays rolled into one. It's grest to see so many folks excited about beekeeping, whether it's for their own enjoyment or to sell honey. Of the approximately 100 food crops we utilize, bees have something to do with about 70 of them, so thank a bee the next time you have a meal.
