Catching up…We GOT our BEES!!!

Just a quick note to catch you up.

Timing is indeed everything. We received our four nucs late yesterday evening between rain storms.

This morning we transferred them to their new homes and provided them with some sugar syrup to help them get started as the weather has been so bad with the rains and cold days that not much is available in the nearby area for them to forage. We hope the sun stays out like it is today so the lovely ladies will have a chance to get acquainted with all they have to eat near by.

To top it off, I must leave for Maryland in about 20 minutes. I still have to pack and change from my beekeeper’s clothes.

So, short note to tell you the stories I’ll have to share will only get better. It was a good thing Hobbit King and I went to the Mountain Empire Beekeeper’s Workshop yesterday as we got our hands into opening a hive. That gave us great practice before we got into our hives on our own this morning. I’ll share all as soon as I return from my business trip.

Later dear ones! Here’s to New Bees Everywhere!!

Honey Cheers,
Hobbit Queen
