His labor is a Chant~
His idleness~ a Tune~
Oh, for a Bee’s experience
Of Clovers, and of Noon!
~Emily Dickinson

The honeybees have  finally arrived, yay!   They arrived in this box last weekend, and they were feelin’ a bit couped up to say the least.  You could hear their buzzing from several yards away!

Transporting these babies from this cardboard chariot to their new home, sweet home required a steady hand. I knew that wouldn’t be mine, so I signed up to take the pictures instead, shutter release buttons don’t sting do they?

Now we watch and wait for these girls to do what they do, my mouth waters with anticipation!
