Honey bees on Grape Hyacinth

We have numerous honey bees visiting the grape hyacinth in our front garden. In our area in Portslade, they grow like weeds and swamp out the flower borders. Nothing ever seemed to visit them and we were constantly trying to dig them up.

Then last year they were visited by honey bees (and an unidentified mining bee species) and even a couple of peacock butterflies.

I have now let them spread into the lawn at one end and these appear to attract the most bees.
