Have you watered in in well?  If not give it a thorough soaking now.

Areas containing moss will turn black ... the moss is dying which is what you want ... it's quite simple to hoick it out with a spring tine lawn rake.  

ID help please!

As you've obviously had bees around earlier in the year, this may be a temporary blip ... perhaps there's something else blooming at the moment in your area which is more attractive to bees than your lavender ... some Lime trees in blossom perhaps, or several acres of field beans which would be blooming just now ...... bees can't resist them!

Hydrangea collapsing

I think that looks fine ... a glorious shrub .... it's in their nature to flop a bit but when the blooms begin to lose moisture the stems will spring back up again ... if you get heavy rain which weighs the blooms down even more I'd give them a shake to get rid of most of the rain.   

Lovely gardening assistant you have there
