To bee or not to bee

A bit of anecdotal reason to hope. After worrying throughout the early summer about a complete absence of honeybees in the garden, and the effects of Colony Collapse Disorder, there seems to be a slight surge as we hit mid-summer. I've noticed, in particular, the attraction that the bell-shaped flowers on my hosta plants hold. Several bees, some honey bees, some bumblebees, and other wild bees, coated yellow with pollen, flitted in and out of the mouth of these flowers this morning.
