I agree Rosemary really attracts bees.
I just thought of something too Deb. Stalked bulbine. Bees go ga-ga over it. Check it out & see if it will grow in your area.
Stalked Bulbine (Bulbine frutescens)
A nation mourns its fallen soldiers, who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. And Junior? Well, Junior spies their solemn white graves from the back of his limousine, and he grieves for the inconveniences he overcame for his silver spoons. Quoth the Craven “Nevermore.” ~Walter Shaub~

Interesting, Jay! I would've thought I would have known that term, but I guess not! Right now, there's more bees on Frostweed and Goldeneye here.
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White

I just posted some photos of my mason bee houses in this forum. I live in Florida so, of course, have some different flowers. Right now my bulbine is blooming again and you're right Ann, the bees are all over it; -also the cuban buttercup. The pentas, plumbago and bleeding heart are also still in bloom.
