Today I opened the hive without Corky! Since it was chilly I did it fast, just so the bees wouldn't get cold. They have moved up to the second box, but the first one still isn't full. Hmmm, maybe they don't want to fill it all. I saw the queen, which is of course good. Sadly, I had problems getting the smoker started, so I did without the smoke. I could tell the bees were more upset that I was in their house, for they kept staring at me. Well, hope the weather clears and it gets hot so they can go out exploring more.
