As The Garden Grows, Back yard

I'm lucky, I only take care of my back yard, and it's small. The HOA maintains the front yard. When we picked our lot, 10 years ago, we purposely chose a small one. We were in our mid-50's then, and we're planning on this being our last home, so we may be here 30 or 40 years, so we were thinking ahead.

This is the back wall, outside our bedroom. The Sally Hanson Roses cover the bedroom windows on each side of our bed, with lavender in between.

Along the back fence, we have more roses, chrysanthums and geraniums.

The raised bed, is a wild tangle, on purpose, of honeysuckle, roses, geraniums and rosemary.

There's a birdbath and bird feeders thrown into the mix.
This is the side yard on the south side.
Now the Hollyhocks are showing off, later it'll be daylilies.
This is outside our living room windows.

This is the north side yard, roses, all kinds of roses.
One view from the east, one from the west.
This is what I see from my kitchen, dining room and office windows.

These are lovely. You've done an amazing job with a small space! My favorite is the "wild tangle" raised bed.

You have a beautiful yard! I have honeysuckle growing right by my front door. It has to be my favorite smell, EVER.
