Linderhof


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.

The Faeries have moved their Garden


My faerie garden from last year -- with stone paths and flowers and herbs . . . . however, I awoke one morning to find that the garden had moved . . .
to another part of the garden and the cottage had even moved in the wheelbarrow. Paths and flowers have moved as well.
There are faeries in the gardens at Linderhof . . . and if you don't believe me, you'll see one . . . occasionally.
The cottage is so much better in it's new location and I do like the paths and plantings much better than what I did.


Who would have known that the faeries would have taken control and moved not only the garden but the cottage!

And if you look closely, often you'll find a fairie in her garden. Smelling flowers and awaiting the time that we mortals are back inside for them to do those things that fairies do!

I love Outdoors Wednesdays and this is my contribution -- many thanks to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for hosting this event.

If you believe in faeries you'll understand the garden at Linderhof . . . if you don't, more's the pity for you're missing out on a magical kingdom!

ADORE THAT COTTAGE!!! Where did you find that cutie? Your post was so unique. Thank you for sharing your photos. TOOOOOO cute!

I MADE the cottage -- it's hypertufa and not really that difficult. The class wasn't cheap ($95) but I've seen the same cottages for sale for $300!

Love this post and I HAVE to know where you got the fairy in the third pic. I think I have asked you that before and I love her.

It's a long ago Nell Hill's purchase -- alas, they are "long gone" but . . . my favorite garden spot has a similar one (made from metal) and much larger (Red Cedar Gardens) . . .

That faery is a favorite of mine and I was so happy that I got her.

Oh my! Your fairies are strong little things, aren't they? I guess they just wanted a change of scene. How clever of them to move under cover of nightfall.

Your faerie garden is so charming ... and the little cottage is amazing! That must have been difficult to make.
So lovely -- what will the faeries be adding this year?

Having been a Brownie, and then many years later, a Brown Owl, I most definitly believe in Faeries...also Sprites and Imps!
How lovely that the Faeries have been working in your garden. They must feel right at home at Linderhof!

I wish those fairies would come clean my house! When I was a child, my mom used to say that the fairies cleaned the house while I slept.

We used to have a local store that sold only fairies and stuff related to fairies. They also did kids dress up tea parties with you guessed it...fairy outfits. Such fun.
