Pretty scary getting started. When I dumped out each package of thousands of bees I have to admit my heart rate shot up pretty high. But I got them in their hives without one sting. But it was hard not to freak out. So now all the little sisters are getting used to their new digs.
Two, three pound packages of Italians arrived this morning along with two Russian queens. It’s rainy and cold today so they are spending time in the basement until tomorrow afternoon when it is supposed to be sunny and warmer. I’ll keep you posted on my installation tomorrow.
Local legend has it that there is, above the sky, beyond the gray, a burning disc that casts a warm light. I have seen this thing in other places. I have not seen this thing here for a very long time.
