My first Bee hive 2013

2013 is now the first year that I live in a house with enough room to have a bee hive.  On April 20th 2013 I picked up by bee package from the Ballard Bee Company

My queen and her ~10,000 followers seem to be doing well.

At day 2 I opened the hive to make sure the queen made it out of her cage by eating through the mini-marshmallow.  She made it out. 

I will open the hive again on day 7 to see if she has started laying eggs.

Here are some pictures.
