Went aaawesome Bohica!! The owners brought their weakest hives which of course they would. They wouldn't bring their strongest hives to where they don't know how they'll do. Some of my hives were as heavy (with honey) by the end of the summer as the best hives I never knew they were there, even when the hives were only 40' from the house, only time I saw a bee was when I went right to them. I'd sit on the grass and listen to them hum, it's such a soothing calming sound. Never got stung once even though I got to handle them bare handed (we wore head covers) sweetest mildest little things it made my summer. They did very well and the owners want to bring them back next summer
They did promise me some honey which I haven't seen yet but I don't care, told them I'd love some but it isn't necessary. It's a privilege to have them around. I have taken to drinking honey water, just hot water and a tablespoon of honey, really good!
