Garden Carnage

I've been taking pictures of my little garden as the bulbs have been popping up. It was so exciting to see them growing more and more every day... it gave me great hope for the return of Spring! I couldn't wait to see them bloom. But now I'm sad. Apparently some landscapers came in (we do *not* have regular landscaping here... the ivy was about to take over the place) and decided that my garden was in need of a good solid raking.


Oh the carnage! Leaves are shredded, buds raked into the ground. Oh the humanity!

Well, a couple of the buds are still standing, and a few of the bulbs hadn't budded yet, so I hoping they'll bounce back. It's just... dude! who rakes bulbs???

Oh, goodness, those pictures made me tear up a little. Maybe you can buy some potted plants to set out in their places?

Where is the F****ing leaf blower when you need him!

Rebel, I am truly saddened by your loss.

heh, I did that in the middle of the night because I'm so envious you have green things actually growing, people cannot be happy while I'm not! Thats the rules.

Ohh noooo! Rabbitds digging up newly planted paeonies is bad enough, but senseless men trampling over everything is horrendous! Sympa.
