It was time to sit down and speak to Roger the boss squirrel in our neighborhood to discuss some important issues regarding the newly planted spring bulbs. Getting him to agree right away about anything was out of the question. First we had to promise to keep the bird feeders full with more sunflowers seeds than last year and even get them corn cobs. He had to be reminded that neighbors Nancy and Ron have oak trees which produce plenty of acorns. Roger kept squirreling around but finally commited to do as we asked and promised that nobody under his command will dig up the newly planted bulbs. Just wish I didn't see that little grin on his face when he was walking away.
Here are the bulbs that were planted today.
Hyacinth is the only one that I already have.
Hoping these will bring a brighter spring in 2009.
Just had to pick up these "Point Pelee" Mums at the super market.
They're for inside the bay window. Sure are pretty.
