Oh Angi, just wait, April is just around the corner. I know it is a long time to wait. But that is when the weather is really bee friendly. You have much earlier warm weather than we do, no doubt about that. But just think. By the time April comes around, and you have received so much information here from your forum friends, that you will be able to keep you bees even better. You will have so much information that you have gleaned here. It will make your keeping bees so much easier and better. Just keep listening and learning.
By the way, I have been neglectful about getting your propolis ready. But I have the honey room downstairs with my frames for crushing and straining in to get ready for the crush and strain. I will be gathering the sticky propolis off them this week and by after the weekend I will be able to send you a big glob through the mail. Be patient, I have not forgotten about you, just been rather lazy, being caught up in so much stuff with all the kids and the holiday vacation. They have been off school now for over 2 weeks and are all going back today, yea!!!!! Happiness to get my routines back in order. I am a routine-oriented person and so many of these young darlings needing so much attention, it has been busy than blazes. Have a wonderful, great day, your bees will come and then you will be in a little bit of heaven that you have only dreamed about ;) :) :) :) Cindi
