    This week we move the boxes
    to a new hive stand in the beeyard,
    We inspect the hives,
    while doing this.
    We witness a honey bee emerging,
    in the original hive we call Old Faithful.
    The new split made on March 20th,
    We call her Flower Power.
    this new split has capped brood on April 9th.
