Today I have finally become a bee keeper. At 9.30 this morning a friend gave me a small colony from an AS he did earlier on in the year. Unfortunately when he did the split he left 2 queen cells and they swarmed with the first queen. I am left with bees covering about 4 frames, 2 frames of eggs and 2 frames capped brood. Hopefully they'll build up enough to get through winter.

Enjoy Hawklord! Don't spend all your time staring in with your nose too close to the entrance like I did.:)
