Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas
Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Our Fairy Garden
It's a wee garden for wee folk -- this fairy garden at Linderhof. Planted with herbs -- thyme, camomile and sweet marjoram. A few pansies are in the garden this spring for fairies do love flowers.
The cottage is a "Scotch" cottage made from hypertufa. It reminds Husband Jim and I of the miniature garden in Bourton-on-the-water in England. That garden, however, is not a garden for fairies but a replica of the town.
It's fun to tend this wee garden in the hopes that fairies will move into the wee house. I think, perhaps, that we've been successful for if you look closely, isn't there one hiding amongst the plants?
