lawn ornaments

Here is one of many crocus clumps I noticed yesterday. They are popping up in a lawn at Sarah Duke Gardens. I've tried to plant some in my grassy areas at home but almost all of them have become squirrel food. To keep the rodents away, try using pepper flakes to cover the soil when you plant spring blooming bulbs. I hear it works some of the time which is about the best you can hope for when you are dealing with garden pests.
