Crocus

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!

 

One thought on “Crocus”

  1. I have had similar experiences with squirrels in Washington state. I saw them scurrying around with my tulip bulbs in their mouths in the fall. The next spring I was surprised to see tulips blooming in my lawn. The squirrels stash away food for winter, but I don’t think their memories are very good.
