the arrival

We picked up our bees yesterday. My trusty assistant Jim pried the board off so I could get the queen cage out. She has a green dot on her head. I told Jim it's an omen. Green is my obsession. Started a hole in the candy and hung the cage between the frames. Took some frames out to dump the bees in. It was amazing to see that huge mound of bees in the bottom of the box. We slowly put the frames back in, put the inner cover on, added a jar of sugar syrup and put the outer cover back on. Now we cross our fingers. And learn how to use this camera.
