Day #204 Still a Lot to Learn

Tuesday I spent some time with my friend Geri, who has a 10-frame hive.

She knew as little about hers as I knew about mine. I’d told her I’d help her open it up for the first check since she brought it home last week.

Guess what? I hadn’t a clue whether I was looking at something positive or something negative. So she called Tommy, who—bless him indeed—stopped by and set her mind at rest. It seems the hive is working just fine. All that comb built between the frames is to be expected (I’d thought it was only in MY hive!)

This just goes to prove that I still don’t know nearly enough about bees. Of course, Tommy’s been around bees for 40 years, since his grandpa and dad had hives. So maybe Geri and I aren’t doing too badly with our less-than-a-month of experience…

BEEattitude for Day # 204:
       Blessed are those who take time to practice, for they shall gradually get better at what they do.

One thing Fran is grateful for right now:
       My knees that still work
