Day #210 High-Rise Apartments for Apis Mellifera

Yippee! My yellow hive now is two stories tall.

Late Monday morning I started the smoker, opened the hive, and saw the most beautiful array of brown-capped brood and white-capped honey. The frames were full enough that I could move the center one up into a second hive body.

I took the time to check each of the frames, and they were all simply beautiful. I didn't spot the queen, but there were loads of eggs and baby bee larvae.

Life doesn’t get much better than this. I hope you’re cheering along with me.

FRANattitude for Day # 210:
