I returned from my journeys inspired to work in my garden. Since I am a firm believer in perennials, I purchased gorgeous day lily bulbs which were quite pricey. My gladiolas bulbs from Dollar Tree were growing at a record pace along the condo foundation so I purchased these bulbs planting them away from the condo perimeter.
The following day I was aghast to find my new bulbs unearthed and gone. Where had they gone? In further investigation I found the squirrels to be the culprits. For the price of the bulbs I could have taken them to lunch at a 5-star restaurant.
Still hoping to rescue what I had left I placed stones around the base of the plants. The next day I found they pulled off the stems and worse yet they didn’t even eat the stems. Today I am off to Dollar Tree to purchase moth balls as I am told this works to keep snakes at bay and hopefully it will work for squirrels?. Who knows maybe they’ll come colored and what a decorative touch this would be for my garden.
Will keep you posted.
