This is a Hyssop plant in my backyard. Hyssops are known to attract honey bees. It’s Memorial Day weekend, the garden is full of flowers and the grass is full of clover, and I have yet to see a single bee. I’ve read that over 30 percent of the bees in the U.S. died this winter. But it’s been a little more cold and rainy than usual, and they may be late arriving because of that. We’ll see.
In other backyard project news, my wife saw a fox just past the back fence today, eating something, a squirrel she thinks. The kittens, I fear, may not be long for this world.
