Preparing for new bees

I am expecting two packages of bees from Walter T. Kelley in a week or so, and a couple of nucs in May.  I have two hives assembled and in the yard but needed to make some room in the shed so we assembled two more hive boxes yesterday.  When we get them painted, we can set them outside.  Here's the new wood:

It's all 8-frame.  There's four deeps and four mediums for two hives, plus tops, bottoms, etc. I'll have to get some more, but this will get me started.

All the trees and flowers are really blooming now.  I'm anxious to get the bees and get started this year.
