    Our bees are so friendly! Chris got in there on Saturday to switch out the sugar water and to see how the comb building was going. I hadn’t been able to see any comb being built through the window, but sure enough there were at least seven bars with comb, at least three of them with a decent amount of comb too. As I noted in one of the photos above, you can see pollen in one of them. Soon the queen will be laying brood cells and the hive will really be under way. The bees have been more active over the last few days with the rise in temperature once again. However we’re going to be getting another cold front late tonight that will probably make them stay closer to home for a day or two.

    I really love having the hive so far!

      Why hello there ladies..!! I’ve noticed the same in our packages this year (delivered from Georgia). They have had such a wonderful temperament so far. Your bees look great!

      I am LOVING the posts about the bees! You have such a beautiful hive too. Excited to hear more since I plan on keeping bees myself once we buy a house this summer (fingers crossed).

      I’m so excited to read about your bees! And that hive is really cool, I’ve never seen one like that! Is it your own design?

    7. Chris says:

      I’m still on the fence about starting a hive here. How far away from the house should it be? AND…how many stings have the two of you gotten so far?

    8. Coquitlam Flowers says:

      Wow…. thanks for posting. The first time I can see hives so closely and clearly!
