It has been awhile since I have updated my page.  But recently I saw a picture on the net that struck me like a lightning bolt.

Perhaps even as far back as the Garden Of  Eden man has been waging a battle to protect his precious bulbs from squirrels.

I personally have had a modicum of success by burying cat hair, or even my own hair, just over the bulb.

Members of the on line garden club I belong to have been sharing suggestions which included a motion sensitive device that you attach to a hose.

But this picture I saw poses an ecologically safe method as well.  I call it the Marie Antoinette Solution. You may remember that Marie was famous for her expression, "Let Them Eat Cake"!

And hey this might even keep them away from the bird feeders.

Since this picture was circulating freely as part of one of those "cute pictures of animals" emails and the photographers name was not included I am unable to give credit.
