On The Road:
The Pikes Peak Hill Climb was this weekend. Cool to watch the Victory stunt team, but unfortunately the Victory Project 156 bike was a DNF due to crash damage.

In the Beeyard - starting at 18:45Queen Fiona's hive is doing good. She's not only alive, but I saw her! There were eggs and larva.
S&J hive is also good. Didn't see the queen, but I did see larva, which means the queen didn't get hurt during the move.
|REALLY need to cut the weeds down again!|
Beeyard visit with the local group. Walked through hive inspections, powdered sugar roll for mite check, and created a nucleus hive.
Been a busy, tiring week. Sleeping a lot.
Thanks for watching!
