Well, DH yelled up the stairs 'You GOTTA see this'! I went running down and what do I see? DH cracking up and my three EEs in this little foot wide span of garden that runs in front of our patio. All three are right next to eachother and have DUG DOWN A GOOD 8 INCHES!! My Irises!!! They were just starting to come up! Meanwhile my DH is cracking up and the ladies are just sitting there having a communal sun/dust bath! I'm a black thumb to begin with. These were planted by the prior owner and have survived my attention (and lack there of depending) so far. I love flowers and these were the plant in the back yard that were guaranteed to have survived the winter! Oh, please let them still spring up! Anyone have advice to keep the ladies from doing this again? I wouldn't have minded this in the other garden areas (lots bigger, no bulbs, some shrubs they're either not going to hurt or that are already dead -I can't tell yet) but right there!! They have a sand bath in their run and there's plenty of loose dirt/mulch behind their coop and around. How do I make sure they go somewhere else next time?
