I used to really hate the squirrels eating all my flower bulbs/corms..
..Then, I bought some really late into the season. I felt so bad that they were practically growing in the bags at the store without any soil what so ever. This time I fenced them in with a milk crate that also had holes at the bottom.
This year, I'm thankful for those squirrels. My pots are overstocked with new bulbs/corms and I couldn't keep the population down all by myself.
