well, yesterday was warm but a little windy, then today was beautiful. this afternoon suited up and opened the hives; 3 of 4 sugar water feeders were empty. the 4th was half gone. fri I decided to check the feeders and must have been too windy,cause an angry lady came out and hit me like a bullet! i got the stinger out, but my hand swelled up good. the other 2 stings, hurt one second, then was over. well, today it was sunny with no wind and the girls pretty much ignored me. I fillrd the feeders and closed it all up. the next couple days some beekeep friends are coming over to help me check the supers and brood boxes; i can ardly wait!
