"Mama! Look at the bees!"

That is what the apiariella said to Brenda as they sat at the table. The Benedictium swarmed today. Brenda called me to tell me at work. The kids and she described it as "a tornado of bees." After work I stopped up at the hive to see how it looked. It looked happy; foragers were returning to the Benedictium laden with pollen. I hope their new queen works out. I wonder if she's mated and back at the hive yet.

It looks like we were a week late adding the extra room.

I still haven't seen bees of either hive using the new water bucket yet.

This is a photo Brenda took yesterday of the Benedictium. Is this a sign of the coming swarm?
