Miss Pepper, (by the way, what a very cool name, tell us one day how you obtained it). It is wonderful to have new members come onto our forum, you have been in chat you say, but now you are here in person, lovely. Nice to hear that your hive overwintered well and you are building up to make some splits, yeah!!!
You have found the best place to come and spend some time, learn stuff, tell us of your experiences with the bees. We love to hear stories of stuff about fellow beekeepers, we are a curious bunch (especially me, hee, hee). Welcome, ask all your questions, never consider any question to be dumb or irrelevant, they are all important and that is how we all learn, asking questions. We all were new beekeepers, once upon that time. Welcome. HAve a wonderful and great day, Cindi
Dallas, by the way, oooh you make me wanna laugh!!!!!
