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. :x
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.
