Priming and painting the hive.  We named the hive, rather than the queen, Terpsichore, after the Muse of Dance and Stringed Instruments. I’m designing a stencil design of a lyre – this will be stamped in gold around the bottom edge of the hive.


Here is Terpsichore, nearly finished and ready to be mounted up the hill.  Further descriptions, stories and more coming soon, I promise.  It’s been a very busy week and I wanted to make sure these pictures were posted.
