You might think so, but Big's homecoming is not my favorite thing today. My favorite thing this week is my flower garden.
I am happy to share my garden with you on Favorite Things Friday with Mrs. P over at Quilting in My Pyjamas!
If you remember, when we first moved to this home, the garden was very sad looking.

I have spent part of every day for the past few months, working in the flower beds. Big and I have actually created a new bed.
When my Mother came to visit last month, she said, "Oh you have such a nice garden. It must be because of all the rain you get." I had to laugh because she lives in the desert and rain is a big event!
The rain that we had been getting was helpful, but my constant working in the beds, had a little more to do with the beauty.

This bed is just one of the the many. It takes up a small corner in the backyard. We also have a bed on each side of the house and in the front of the house, but I will post about those on another day!
When the temperature goes down and you can no longer fry an egg on the sidewalk, Big and I will be outside creating more space for flowers! My goal is to one day have a Cottage Garden.
I would like it to be noted that most the photos you have been looking at are from my new phone!
I am also linking to Flaunt your Flowers today!
I hope you have a wonderful Friday!
