Here Comes Peter Cottontail

In the fall we planted 100 daffodil bulbs and 100 crocus bulbs.
So far they're off to a bad start.
The daffodils are just starting to poke their heads up out of the ground and it looks like they may not make it to maturity. Tiny Tim may have tiptoed through the tulips but our dog Cody is dashing through the daffodils. Now for the crocus. Something is eating the buds and flowers. As soon as they burst open, poof! I'm pretty sure what kind of little critter is chowing down on them and if I catch him at it we'll be having rabbit stew for dinner. Oh don't worry, the rabbit is safe because he's eaten every last one as you can see by all that's left are the little nubs. There's nothing left for him to come back to.

That darn wabbit! I want to plant a bunch of bulbs for next year. I think you're supposed to plant them in the fall?
