Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

At the end of a long hard winter which has killed off all your bees, what do you do? See what honey you can still salvage. What about the questionable stuff? Stack the boxes on edge for the swarms to find! I left a half dozen boxes on edge like this, some with broken comb, most of it cleared of stuff. When I returned last week, I found that bees had taken over two nuc boxes that were together. I stacked them up today with a couple more boxes and now I have a honey bee colony again!
