WOW! Photos!

I am not sure what I did differently this time, but photos posted!! They are of the installing of the bees...this happened on March 31st, and that is the "official" start date of my beekeeping status...I am enjoying a book titled "Langstroth's Hive and the Honey-Bee" by L.L. Langstroth. The subtitle is "The Classic Beekeeper's Manual" and it was originally published in 1878 (J.B. Lippincott)under the title "A Practical Treatise on the Hive and Honey-Bee" It is so fascinating--many references to God, which I find refreshing!!
Lord-willing, there will be more photos to share....
Bee happy!! ;0)

Why can't I post my photos?

I have photos of the 'installing' of the bees, but for some reason, they will not upload.....today I plan to go back and 'check' on the girls,specifically to see if the queens are 'laying' or not. Last week my mentor pulled wax off the frame and told my bees to 'behave' becasue the wax they were building was not uniform...5 bees came out with the frame-lifeless-so i wonder if hey got teh message:
Build that wax more uniformly girls, because it is better for you in the longrun....
