I am in Vermont, also, (I'm further north than Archie, I think) but the day is wonderful here, too. Unfortunately, all three of my hives died over the winter. I don't really know why.
I'll be getting three nucs but not until the end of May. It really makes me sad to go outside to work around and realize that my bee hives are empty. I enjoy watching them so much. I envy all of you that have bees working right now.
