Squirrel Nutkin has lost his nuts

The hazel tree in our garden produces lots of hazelnuts, which the squirrels love. All day they bury them around our garden.

About half (slight exaggeration) of our garden is devoted to a huge climbing frame which sits on a six inch bed of play bark which sits atop a weed stop liner.

Well the squirrels must have been busy last year because in the last couple of weeks I've pulled about 20 baby hazel trees from the play bark (nut attached to roots) which means the dumb squirrels, who are universally referred to as Squirrel Nutkin, have forgotten where they buried their nuts.
