Some kind of little furry snaped the fresh growth off of some of the crocuses. Tough as the crocuses are, they bloomed anyway, but as you can see in the foreground, some of the flowers don't have tops! (You can see the damage in the three flowers at the front left side of the photo.)
I have sprinkled some blood meal around all my spring bulbs now. That's the only remedy I know of, that seems to work. I have to replenish if often, especially after it rains.
If any gardeners out there who read this know of any other tricks to get the critters away, I'd love to hear it!
