Have you noticed a shortage of bees this year?

I have been noticing a shortage in bees on the plot this year. Whether it is related to the colder spring, a knock on effect from last year's terrible wet weather or other reasons, the plot isn't buzzing at its usual level.
It has been a relief this week to see more bees around. In particular, they are loving the poppies that have now started flowering in my cut flower border.
I am a big believer in growing plants for pollinators in any gaps I can spare. As some of you may have read in April this year, I try to grow a variety of herbs and flowers that not only look pretty, but encourage a wide variety of insects onto the plots.
