Mklangelo. You know the old rhyme, good things take time. Be patient, patience is something that not all of us possess, do strive to possess this wonderful human attribute. It could be yours to hold in your hand, if you nurture is gently. Good luck with your bees, I cannot wish this more than anything else for a new beekeeper. I have learned an eon of lessons through my failures in my first 2 years of keeping bees. I will never, ever forget these lessons.
I have had lots of success as well, but I think that we learn more through the agonies of mistakes. These we reflect on, far more than our success, and we learn. I don't care who you are, we are human, and we are the same, we all share this, I know that. AND, I honestly think that that is a great and wonderful thing. We will all become great beekeepers one day, with oh, so healthy bees. Have the beautiful, wonderful, day, and good health. Cindi
