Bee update!

I picked up my BEEutiful bees yesterday.  Here they are all packaged up and ready to be added to the hive.  Overall, I think the transition went smoothly for my first time.  Sadly, there were some casualties, but I think that's normal.  I had a little anxiety - not gonna lie, but I accomplished it without a single sting - thanks to my sweet beekeeping gear.  The process created a little "Buzz" and let's just say I got to know my new neighbor a little bit better.  I'm not sure if she thinks I'm crazy or if she is just scared of bees, but I tried to assure her that there was nothing to be alarmed about.  I think she'll be keeping a close watch on me. 

Here is the lovely hive.  I have a few more additional boxes that will be added later this summer.  I'll be checking them tomorrow to see if the queen bee has been released yet.  Let the fun begin!
