A squirrel stole my iris!
Found a new Purple Joy SDB uprooted today - got it at auction last week and planted it as part of a new grouping (Ominous Stranger, Thunderbird, Night Owl, and Purple Joy in front). I replanted it and made a mental note to put down some deer repellent first thing tomorrow morning, since it's supposed to rain tonight. Squirrels are my main problem, not deer, but the repellent should help. Anyways, not three hours later I was taking a walk around the yard, visiting the garden as I like to do, and.... it's gone! Just plain not there any more! Can't find it anywhere! Has anyone here ever had squirrels just uproot and make off with irises before? I'm really upset!
