Yours are ahead of mine SBG mine is only just starting to flower , I hope mine will encourage more butterflies, we have enough bees in fact I'm fairly sure someone must have a Bee hive close by because swarms of them come daily to drink out of one of our water features ...

There were lots of different bee types on it yesterday. Even today despite the rain there were bees on it.

Anyone have a problem with terrible slug damage to this? They turn up their noses at my Hostas to go for this.
