    Hello, got my first hive on March 19, 2011 and am anxious to get started.

    Had my first encounter with bees between 3 and 4 years old when I turned over one of my grandfathers bee hives.

    This time around I didn't use such an abrupt frontal assault and only got 4 stings moving the hive to my place from a friend who had become severely allergic to the stings.

    We've had some unusually cool weather for this time of year in North Alabama and I haven't seen much activity yet. My clover, crimson and white dutch is popping up and I have a Catawba tree and several Tulip Poplars with green already showing. Won't be long now.

    Hopefully I'll be able to contribute to the forum as time goes by.

    Wayne
