Yesterday, Rob sorted and cleaned out the dead hives from last year. We're down to one living hive ( from three). If we're lucky we should be able to catch a swarm out of this hive, as it's very healthy and active. Also there is a man in the next town over that is selling small hives, we'll probably purchase at least one and try it all over again.
I know we're all sick of winter, and glad it's over. But can you imagine how good it must be for these girls to finally get out and have something to eat.?
p.s. My coworker posted a photoshop tutorial here about how to make a pan-o-rama. In case anyone is interested.
