Only in Canada…
Tulips are a big source of pride in Canada, the country does after all play host to one of the world’s largest tulip festivals each year.
Unfortunately for the MUN Botanical Garden in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the Canada 150 display has been ruined before it ever bloomed. The garden reports that their tulip display planted last October in celebration of Canada 150 has been ruined by an unusual culprit.
In a Facebook post from last week, staff write that “The Garden Cafe at MUN Botanical Garden in St John’s NL is a popular lunch spot, however, the native moose who visited the Garden last night thought the Canada 150 Celebration Tulip Garden was the perfect place for a bite. The moose munched on the entire red and white tulip display–Canada’s 150th maple leaf design and all!”
MUN Botanical Garden was one of 150 recipients to receive 1,000 tulip bulbs to participate in 150 Celebration Gardens. Hopefully the other 149 gardens are faring better.
