We were overrun with squirrels and chipmunks in 2012 and the darn chipmunks would get into the big flower garden and dig up my crocus bulbs and stash them for later. I was so discouraged that I didn’t plant any new ones last fall – figuring what good is it – the darn little buggers will just dig them up again anyway!
But I love crocus, to me they are the first signs of a REAL Spring here in Vermont after a long, cold winter. So I was thrilled to see that they at least left me some!
As Ben and I walked the trail out back that leads into the woods with Max, we found scattered crocus all over the place – so I guess the chipmunks didn’t get them all!
