  4. Good Inspections - June 30, 2012

    6 great hives!
    Flower Power, Old Faithful, Garden Party, Magic Bus and Candy Land
    All laying, working and growing.
    The sixth, Flower Child,
    the newest split may not have raised a successful queen.
    We gave her a frame of queen cells and eggs to do the bee thing with.

    Best part of the day!
    Finally some shots of the tiny mighty queen!
