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 Garden Tour Ready

Today was "G" day -- Garden Tour day. I'll post more about the tour later but here are some pictures of the herb garden -- Tour Ready!
Husband Jim and I are really tired and I'm off to bath and then to bed.

Tomorrow is another tour day -- but it doesn't start until noon -- I have all morning and not many things on my list!

It's Sunday and time to "Share our Garden" -- to see some great gardens go visit Artie at Color Outside the Lines.

Is this your home garden on tour? Absolutely lovely! I love the arbor.

Sweet dreams,

Okay, silly me! I just read your side bar, so is your garden!

Beautiful...and what fun to be on a garden tour.

My girlfriend and her husband bought an historic home in old northeast Kansas City (Scarrit Renissance neighborhood). They restored it and were on the historic homes tour one year! Such fun, but lots of work!

Beautiful Martha, it's so beautiful. I'm so jealous over that pergola, and the wonderful established plants. Oy! That garden (the one on my blog) is gorgeous - there are so many others that are just as nice. If you're up for it, the Buffalo Garden Walk is the last weekend in July. I don't know how far of a drive that is for you ... but if you can make it let me know, you can tag along with us, and I'll buy you and yours lunch! :) Off to work on the patio! :) Thanks for playing along with SAGS!

Now an herb garden always gets my attention. I love herbs due to the bugs not liking them much!

How wonderful! I love the pergola and your beautiful herb garden. It must be so satisfying to show off your beautiful home in a garden tour. I would have loved to have been there to see the beauty in person.
