Bee on the borage

Last summer I asked the twittersphere, or whatever you call it, to recommend a plant that I could grow that would attract bees (in the 70’s it was whales we were saving, now it’s bees – is that progress?). Two people replied with the answer that borage was the thing.
I grew some from seed that rose triffid like on a barren patch of ground and this year it has returned in force – this plant the vanguard.
Who said the bees were all dead!
