My new beekeeping partner and the bees are here!

 The Apiary aka Bee Yard is up and running! We are now up to 5 hives with the additional hive owned by a woman I am mentoring. I am so excited about this because it gets lonely up there working away with no one to talk to but the bees! Yesterday we worked together and 4 hands are definitely better than two! We located the queens and marked them which is so much easier to do with someone helping!
This is Kisha's new hive! The bees are active and adapting quite well. Looking forward to teaching her what I know and learning together. The bees are forever teaching us!
