Our beekeeping adventure is progressing nicely. They seem to be doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing-------and today when we peeked in, we saw the Queen!!!!! She is the little creature with the white dot on her back. We used our bee suits and used our smoker but next time--no smoker. The bees just let us do our thing and we let them do theirs. One little bee came after me, but I quitely walked away and eventually she returned to the hive. Love these little creatures!!!!
