|My bee garden, ready and waiting|
I spent most of last week getting my new hives ready for the arrival of the new bees. On Friday morning I set everything up. Poor Honeysuckle (taller hive in the middle) was only there for the photo, to remind me of what I hope my apiary looks like someday soon. It's not as pristine as the newly painted hives, but the paint is still good so it got a good scrubbing and sunning. I plan to hoist it up a tree to use as a swarm bait hive (yeah, right).
Of course my preparations had proper snoopervision.
|Riley woke up occasionally to observe my progress.|
Saturday was pick-up day, but when I showed up for my bees I was told delivery had been postponed until next Saturday. Somehow I didn't get the email. sigh
I confess to being just a tad disappointed (a big tad) because everything is starting to bloom. That's a week my bees will miss! Oh well.
