Bee Book for You

Last year I put together this book in Shutterfly as a gift to my little beekeeper helpers at Christmas.  It was very easy to drop photos into the pre-designed pages.

Please feel free to order a copy for yourself.   Shutterfly has some great sales for Mother's Day.

Shutterfly offers exclusive layouts and designs so you can make your book just the way you want.

Busy Bees

Flowers in Bloom

Crabapples and apple trees are in bloom.  

The bees are collecting pollen to build up supply.  

The two newest hives have "nucs" installed.   Nucs are established hives with laying queen and brood (baby bees) at various stages of development.
The shorter hives have packaged bees (3lbs of worker bees and 1 queen).  The two taller hives overwintered and are growing fast.  

The crabapple trees are a flurry of activity.  You can hear the bees when you walk by.   

The supers (smaller boxes for honey storage) and more brood (large boxes) are ready for expansion and baseball season.
