Very cool Rue... although all those bees feel a bit intimidating to me. It's the unknown though with a tad of cautiousness hahaha.

Can't wait to see them in person.
You go girl! You can bee my mentor in the near future :)

happy day!

Tis a brave girl you are, Rue. Don't they have smaller gloves to fit your little hands?

Marcia - I had a moment of fight or flight response when I first opened the package, but it passed quickly and then I felt totally calm. It was a really cool experience. They seem to be getting all settled in today.

The gloves came with the kit Jon gave me and are definitely too big. Dagny thinks she may be able to modify them for me. A lot of beekeepers work with bare hands. I can almost imagine doing that, but I'm not quite there yet :o).
