We enjoyed the pretty purple flowers though they died quickly.
As the temperatures dropped and the time to dig them up approached I mentioned to my husband that I had chased a mouse (bravely on my part) out from under the foliage when I was watering the day before.
He went to investigate. All he found was holes and chewed out skins and a few measly tubers!
Look out mice - I have some nice portions of poison for you next!
