Underneath my magnolia tree, outside my kitchen doors at this time of year, I would normally be seeing my lovely crocus in bloom.
Instead this year, as the flowers all came out a squirrel bit off each flower and left it. Not one flower left. They have also chewed every crocus in my pots, where I planted a bulb lasagne in the autumn. I'm hoping the hyacinths will still survive, they dont like those.
I'm taking it this is revenge for squirrel proofing my bird feeders. I'm so sad, I love those crocus, the first sign of spring near the house.
Ever feel like you are trying to win a losing battle, the pigeons have stripped the leaves off my lilac for last two years and have killed that... I'm about ready to buy a very powerful water pistol...
Anyone else had this ?
