Happy May Day!

This is how bees arrive via USPS. You can see, hear, smell and feel them! A very brave postman left these in my garage on Saturday. 5 pounds of honey bees!
They are covering a can of sugar water and a small cage containing their queen. Right now they aren't very happy - but they are pretty docile. They are hungry, tired, and need to use the ladies room. Plus they don't have babies or a territory to defend (yet).

Now they are ensconced in their new Home Sweet Home. Inside they are busy sniffing, cleaning, and chewing their queen out of her cage so she can GET BUSY. Hopefully within a few weeks, she'll be laying 1000 eggs PER DAY!
