I found a low branch back in the bushes. Saw a bee checking them out but not a lot of buzzing. The "tassels" on this low branch are about 8" long, and they smell nice. Made me think of Lilacs. Most of the ones in the tree tops are only 5" (near as I can tell) and not hanging down like these.
But you may be right ...this Mexican Palm had more bees on it and it is very windy today with scattered showers.
