Last year there were very few, but this year I don't think I've seen a single honey bee in the garden of Chez Wafflycat. Loads of bummlers, but honey bees... gone. A very bad sign indeed. Lots of plants out there that provide food for them, to encourage pollinating insects, but no honey bees. As much as I love bummlers, to not see their honey-producing cousins is a sad, sad thing.
