can i replant dug up bulbs?

There's still snow on the ground but its a very warm day so I decided to do some late winter gardening and prune climbing roses and cut back Plumbago.

I lifted a section of Plumbago draping over garden wall and discovered a pile of what looks like small flower bulbs!

I have been gardening for 20 years in same home and have never seen this. Is it possible that something dug up like all 200 tiny early spring flowering bulbs that I planted years ago and hid them in a pile under my plumbago?

What DOES that?!?
Can I replant them?
How do I protect them next year?

We have always had rabbits and super aggressive squirrels but they have never bothered my front garden before and i have made no big changes recently so I am mystified.

I tend to do mass plantings so am unsure how to protect my garden.

If the bulbs are still firm, I don't see why you can't replant them. Squirrels are said to dig up bulbs and certainly there are plenty of anecdotes to that effect on the forums. I cannot say that I have ever experienced it, though... Of course if you live long enough....

I've certainly experienced it, even with Daffodils which they won't eat (I think poison to them).
