Thanks, all, for the warm welcome! Wow! We have been having some amazingly beautiful weather here in Middle Tennessee the past few days and the girls have been having a feast on all the blooming things around us! We have a couple of crab-apple trees in our front yard that opened up over the weekend. I stood under them on Sunday afternoon and could hear the loud buzzing! Man, they had those trees covered up! :-D
Beeman, we got our bees from John and Ruth Seaborn at Wolf Creek Apiaries. They are the 4.9 bees. And, yes, Ed, we have pretty much lost our minds on this. But we are having fun together!
