I've always been fascinated with bees (and other insects) since I was a child and that interest carried on into adulthood. I discovered this forum about three or four years ago and although I wanted to get bees then, I held off since I didn't have the time.
The past few years, I haven't seen as many bees in our garden, which has made me sad since I enjoy watching them and now I'm hoping I see a bit more, since I finally ordered my bees! I ordered them by mail, not my first choice but the local beekeeper where I was planning on ordering them had their bee pick up set for this weekend and that was too early for me. My bees should arrive at the beginning of May. I'm really excited about receiving them and am looking forward to learning from other beekeepers in my area and here on the forum too.
