Natives border in the "back back" yard

This lovely garden is something I started to put together when I realized I had some prime full-sun gardening area in the "back back" yard, behind the kitchen garden along the property line in front of the hangar. You can see the park-like lawn of the airstrip beyond, and, far in the distance, the hangars of some of our neighbors on the south side of the runway.

It is primarily composed of natives, although I have a couple of hardy roses, and a whole lot of daffodils and other spring bulbs.  The land is sloping and thus better suited for perennials than for turf that needs mowing.

The sheer amount of space here is a blessing, especially to have such space while being in town and close to all the schools.

Now, of course, there's a whole new full-sun gardening space in the front yard, created when we had to take out our 50 foot tall Ash tree.
