They are looking great considering the winter that we had and the fact that when I took those pictures, the maples hadn't started blooming yet.

Fortunately, I was able to add some frames of honey to the lighter ones.
Looks like Thursday and Friday next week will be perfect to take a peek at the brood and equalize it. The timing is perfect according to my calendar - just about right for the apple bloom (http://www.donnellyfarmsohio.com/2013/10/how-to-maximize-your-honey-production_20.html).
I am hoping the weather forecast stays the same. How is your Spring prep going? Drop me a note in the comments.
