Honey Hive, honey helper!

They're UP!
Our first honey supers. Now I just hope they don't fall over - as you can see, the hive is a little tipsy. If you click on the picture to expand it, you can see the gorgeous maiden hair fern at the left middle of the photo. Always a welcome sight, those fairy ferns!

And I had a very reliable helper .....
:) She is more relaxed around the humming hive than I am. She likes to perch next to it while I do things, and I can tell she absorbs every moment, adding it to her mind's library of beekeeping knowledge. She even came to bee school with me - for the ones I could attend at least. I had to quit half way through, my jobs conflicted. But I did learn quite a bit.
