Flowers by our house

The last photo above shows some tulips flowering now in the middle of summer, that I planted in the fall. Amazingly, they survived winter, didn't get eaten by voles, AND managed to grow flowers (they were quite shaded by grass and fireweed when we came back from our European trip). A bunch of other bulbs I planted apparently became food for the voles, since I could not even find the bulbs in the soil when I dug through it earlier this summer when there was no sign of life in that area of the garden. So, hurray that something survived!
