Our Tulips Got Moosed Up
Our tulips disappeared some time in the last few days. There are remnants left.
But a moose clearly found them tasty. I watched once from inside the house as a moose, two feet away on the other side of the glass snacked on one flower after another.
I didn't see it happen this time, just the remnants. There weren't any flowers yet.
In this case it even pulled the whole plant out, bulb and all. I guess the bulb isn't as tasty as the greens.
There is evidence in the yard that moose were here, though this pile is among half a dozen that the melting snow revealed and isn't from the tulip tasting party.
