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.

Granny

We lost Husband Jim's mother on Wednesday. The lady we affectionally called Granny. It is a sad time at Linderhof.

My sympathies. No matter how old you are, when your last parent dies, you become as an orphan. It is a difficult time. I hope you find comfort in your faith.
