What bees like

Today I didn't do much in the garden but bought beans to plant tomorrow. Of course there is always weeding and watering so I did a bit of that. Looked up into the beehive from underneath and saw five combs starting from the top bars looking exactly as they are supposed to as shown in this video. Yesterday I noticed that some of the bees were bringing pollen back to the hive which I learned may be an indication that there are larvae present as the worker bees feed pollen and honey to the baby larvae, a sign of hope that the colony is doing well.

My herbaceous border is extending and yesterday I also planted out some more herbs and flowers that bees like.
