Well, we have asters coming in too here and they don't seem much into that either. But they are busy. So today I am abstaining from work so that I can go exploring and see just what they are foraging on. There is an abundant new plant here; I suspect it came as a hitchiker in the hay so many of us bought last year and the year before in a brief drought that subdued local hay production. Oddly, I believe it came mostly from Utah (odd in that it was profitable for someone to do that). It's leaves are darke green, pointed with serrated edges with tall, magenta colored flower spikes. It has a minty aroma though it resembles none of the many mints I'm familiar with here. The bees are working it as are the bumblebees, wasps, etc.
