Notice, Petrol Puddle and More Spring Flowers

1   What a lovely way to encourage the customers to do the right thing!

2   After the rain this morning, petrol puddles were left behind on the road – lovely memories of finding these as a child and being so delighted.

3   The front garden has two parts – one is my purple, white and green Suffragette garden as I have mentioned before. The other is daffodils and other Spring flowers and the lovely Mr S is preparing the ground for a Birch tree which is to be delivered next week.

The next two photos are not beautiful but I need your help, all you readers who may also be gardeners. I went out to get a photo of the Suffragette garden this afternoon as it was looking so pretty. To my dismay, 30 or more crocuses had been pulled up and scattered, some near their place of planting but some over a meter away. Many were broken off at the corm and many of the corms had been nibbled/ pecked?    Does anyone out there have any idea what happened and how to prevent it happening again? We’ve replanted all those we could but we have lost so many.
