Ready and Waiting

So, we're just waiting for some bees to arrive now. Six supers and four brood boxes all parcelled up and complete with frames and foundation. I can't say I've become particularly expert at the "making" thing - all that handy stuff has never been my forte - but it is quite satisfying to look back at the efforts of a few weekends' work (with a little help from friends - thanks Hannah and Jill). Added to that the freshly, and expertly painted (by David) WBC is calling out to be used. OK I know we haven't finished and there's lots more preparation to do - painting, more frame-making, reading and making decisions but we are close - so watch this space!
