This beekeeping road has been wonderful and crazy all at the same time. These amazing creatures and all the work they do is truly amazing. The "why's" of what they do can cause one to scratch their head..... ours had us doing this many times. I'm sad. It's a strange sense of loss.
As we come upon daylight saving and the equinox quickly approaching, I'm reminded of new beginnings. I'm reminded that we are all exactly where we need to be. We will start fresh. Probably better than before; our hard worker bees built a fantastic hive, a great start for a new pack.
We will rebuild the hive. We will still cross our fingers.
