    Our little backyard Koi pond area.

    My mom's backyard and pool area, and why I don't bother putting a pool in ... she is just down the road.

    Somebody in her neighborhood owns Pea fowl, and when one person own's them, everybody own's them. They are not shy about begging for handouts. :lol:

    Here’s an update to my previous post...
    Had the deck built in June...

    We decided not to build a giant deck and build a larger patio below. But I finally own a Weber Grill...

    The retaining walls and prep work for the concrete patio is finished. It should be poured and stamped in the next few days...

    Light rail station at Central and Indian School in Phoenix, AZ. I don't have an actual "backyard", so there ya go. I'm much further away than this pic indicates. That's Indian Steele Park in the background.

    Note the Chihuahua on the shed ramp. I think the old buzzard was hoping for something different!

    Here is an Owl Pellet I recently found in the back yard. Biggest one I've ever seen.
    We hear Great Horned Owls very distinctive hooting very often, but in 19 years in this location, I've only seen them twice. Huge birds.

    So, I guess this is the backyard, since it is the view from my bedroom. Which would make the other photo my front yard, the view from the living room. Really enjoyed seeing all the great photos!

    Here's mine in Winter. I don't have any summer pictures right now.

    I live in a townhouse. Behind my place is a creek that feeds a pond that is part of Fort Collins' Natural Areas. Looking more SW is a larger building where there are some businesses, one of which does HVAC I think. I never notice people or noise, so it's pretty nice. All the trees have leaves now so it feels fairly private. I have a little patio, but nothing on it. I think next year I'll put some plants out there and maybe a little bistro table and chair.

    A nice quiet view to relax to, I'm sure you enjoy it.

    Showing off. It took me 53 years of hard work to get here.
    I have a backyard in the mountains and one in the desert. The winters in the mountains got too cold for us.
