Last year, our first hive was a failure. In the face of that failure, I present the following:
- I am comfortable with my ability to recognize some problems with the hive (not all, but it is only my second year).
- I am certain of the correct procedure to install the bees in the hive.
- I have a much better idea what to expect from the bees.
- I am more aware and am actively trying to develop this awareness further.
We knew they were coming and took the opportunity to finish cleaning the hive. We also decided to give it a fresh new paint job. I had some help. Can you think of any better way to re-dedicate a home for bees than with the love and laughter of four lovely "flowers". I'll admit that I may have touched up some of the paint, when they ran off to play and weren't looking.
I humbly ask the Universe to provide the guidance and wisdom I need to work with these incredible bee-ings. And I will gladly go, stumbling down my MooseBoots path, growing, learning, loving, and laughing. My your path be filled with joy and love, and may it be your own. Wish me luck!
