They Are Coming!

Last night we had the suppliers come to talk about ordering bee packages. Then we had a lesson on how to ready the equipment and introduce the hive to their new home. I called today to submit my order for Italian honeybees direct from south Georgia. They will be driven up to Peabody, MA by my supplier. I also have an appointment to meet him next week and order all my basic supplies. Is it weird that I got off the phone with him and did a little dance of joy? My bees yippee!
Now I need to finish scouting the area for the perfect site for my bee yard. I have a couple of ideas but it involves talking to the landowners. Apparently once the word is out people will be flocking to me and begging me to keep a hive at their farms. They also call to have swarms removed. Which would be really cool too.
