Put out a small lawn spinkler. They love water spray.
Yes, we have had less this year, thought it was due to the hot temp.

Now that you mention it .. Hmm.. well the flowers have all bloomed and gone, which last year there was so many pink & red ones that they were everywhere. But the feeders are being drank out of, so they must be around somewhere, just not when I am outside to see them ! lol

Still waiting here, but my Rose of Sharon's and trumpet vine are starting to bloom, so hopefully we will see them soon. As for the bees they hve been getting some type of parasite that has been killing the off.

I didn't get any this year. Put up two feeders. Was very disappointed. Hope they will be back next year.
