Bumblebee On A Button Bush Bloom

We have several Button Bushes on our place, yet thought they are in bloom there is one thing missing: Honey Bees. Usually Honey Bees are everywhere and especially on the bloom of our Button Bushes. Not so this year. I have being looking into why this is and one of the Commonwealths universities is trying to do the work to find out. In my opinion any effort is better than burying our heads in the sand. Please check out where you can help out in your area. As for me and the bees I am planning on adding a second wildflower garden next year……with more planning than my first one. Till the next time enjoy this Bumblebee feeding on a Button Bush bloom.
