The post office called me at 6am and said my bees were in. After a rainy, gloomy weekend, I didn’t expect to have them in by now.

I ran down and picked them up and then hit up the weather channel to see what the day was looking like. “Partly cloudy!” Sweet! The sun was blazing down into the yard by 7:15 and I decided to get these babies hived before heading to work.

It worked out perfectly. We will have rain tonight and that would keep them in there a little longer to get used to their new quarters. Everything went off without a hitch and the bees were pretty calm after 5 days of being caged up and shipped. They were dying to get out.

I’m excited and can’t wait to get back in to be sure the queen was accepted and is laying.

More later.
