I tried Sunday afternoon to open the white hive, just to check and be sure it wasn’t time to put another layer on top so they could expand.
I used my hive tool to loosen the lid.
“What did you do, Fran?”
I’m glad you asked. I settled the lid back down, hoping I wasn’t squashing anybody. Then I sent out a panicked email to bee club members asking for help. Of course, it was Easter Sunday, so I figured I wouldn’t hear from anyone that day. But I sure hope I hear soon.
I don’t want to deal with a swarm this early in the season. In the meantime, I went and played for a while in the garden.
BEEattitude for Day # 195:
Blessed are those who answer questions or lend a hand, for they shall keep our beekeeper calm.
One thing Fran is grateful for right now:
The lovely dinner I had at my daughter’s house. I so enjoy being with them.
