As was promised to us, the weather has warmed, the flowers are in full bloom, and the bees are prospering. These are busy times for both the bees and the keepers. Packages and nucs have been received and many of us are experiencing beekeeping for the first time. In part overwhelming, and in part a true pleasure.
Even though the groundhog saw his shadow, we are within six weeks of spring and certainly you will be into your colonies at least to check on them even before that. For now though we are confined to ordering new equipment, repairing old, and reading, reading, reading.
