The bees will make a beeline for your garden when you start growing borage.
In addition to attracting bees, these pretty herbs will add some color to your garden.

Borage, a cucumber-flavored herb, is a great addition to your kitchen garden. The plant’s bright blue flowers attract lots of bees, which will help pollinate your crops. Growing borage won’t demand much from you either; it reseeds vigorously, so you can leave seedlings in the garden where you want them and pull the rest.
Some people use borage as a tea or in salads. My plants serve clouds of bees all summer long, even some leafcutter bees.
Bees will not hurt you on purpose; they are too busy to pay much attention to you.
