Paucity of honeybees
I'm not sure if I'm noting concern for no reason, but I haven't noticed a single honeybee yet this season. Now, in all fairness I'm not outside that much, but I do mosey out there to tend things on the patio and enjoy WALAT-ing and am constantly looking out the window when I walk by (my beds are planted to be viewed from the house as well as outside) and nothing - not a single honeybee. The bumblebees found the salvia by the window, and I've seen a good number of them. Nothing to speak of on the catmint, and the insects are usually all over that. Is it too early in the season to be concerned about the honeybees? Maybe when more summer flowers/vegetable plants get blooming I'll see them out in droves - ? .
