The Work Of Squirrels

On the east end of the curatorial wing of the Museum of History lies another formal tulip bed. It is set before a backdrop of shrubs and bushes. And it is here that we find evidence of squirrel gardeners, as different coloured tulips from previous years have been replanted and grow each year among the shrubs and bushes.

  1. It happens in our garden too. If only we could train them to relocate the bulbs where we want them.

  6. I think it is amazing that the tulips got relocated by the squirrels. In a way they are good gardeners too because the tulips grow and flower.

  9. Funny to think of squirrels as "gardeners", but it's good they carry pollen to other places.

  10. I've stopped planting tulips as the squirrels always dug them up. They never replanted them though.
