My new Italian bees have arrived! They are presently relaxing in my kitchen, waiting to be installed in their new home.
My Buckfast bees are fascinated by their new sisters. One of them insisted on coming inside with the package. She was very gentle and calm when I escorted her back outside via a paper towel. A big change from last week!
I am very happy with the white wicker table I found at Pier 1 to serve as a hive stand. It’s not only lovely, but it is made of woven plastic. I think the eau de nil colored hive will look wonderful on it. I’ll post pictures later this afternoon.
I’m waiting until my guys come to mow my grass before installation. I want my new girls to be as comfortable as possible in their new home, and I don’t think the sound of lawnmowers and leaf blowers will assist in their transition!
My morning garden was beautiful! I just had to take some pictures…
