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.

Welcome Spring!


Saturday, the first day of Spring we awoke to this!!!!

Sometimes in December, and mostly in January but sometimes in February we get snow on the prairie. A March snow is not unheard of but it doesn't happen very often.

Saturday mid afternoon, we had quite an accumulation of snow (also a rarity on the prairie -- 3 inches or snow is a good snowfall for us) and the snow kept falling.
Sunday morning, it had finally stopped and we had at least a foot of snow in Linderhof's back garden.
Oliver just had to go out Sunday morning -- and he was not impressed! His tummy was below the snow!!! That is no fun!
Which means that it is time to come in in a hurry! Not a good day to sniff at all of his favorite spots!

It's Wednesday which means that it is time for Outdoor Wednesday. Please join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see if there is anymore March snow!

Oh WOW Martha! I don't want to jinx myself here by saying that we've had unusually nice spring like weather - but it's true - we have. Even my tulips are peaking through the dirt! This year the garden promises to have as many spring delights as summer - and that will be wonderful! No worries though - that snow will be gone soon and your back yard will become the gorgeous and covetable yard we've seen before! :) Can't wait! Oooo, did you make it by to see progress photos of the bath? They're up today! :)

That's some snow! Hopefully it will melt quickly to hasten spring flowers.

Wow, that's a lot of snow. I know you must really be ready for Spring. Hopefully it is just around the corner. Hugs, Marty

Oh, my!! It got cooler again here today, but nothing like that!! It has been a very strange winter weather-wise, hasn't it?!

We had that snow earlier last week and it was melted by Sunday. 73 degrees yesterday, and SNOW/rain in our forecast for tonight and tomorrow. Foothills getting snow right this minute, but only wind out here on the plains. Your yard looks quite normal for Colorado this year! Hope it melts quickly and that daffy down dilly will soon be in your town! Have a great thaw. ♥♪

You really did get slammed with a storm, Martha. The pictures look black and white, and your pretty pup the only spot of color. I know it won't be long until we see your beautiful gardens again.

My gosh, you really got it. We had snow here last march, but not that much and it was early in March. I hope it doesn't hurt the buds on your plants. Sure looks pretty though.

Martha, wasn't that something? Our whole family was in K.C. last weekend for a memorial service, including cousins from Atlanta, Houston, S.C., etc. They didn't know what to make of the snow! Thankfully, it melted on Sunday... Let's hope that is over now!

Goodness!! I wouldn't know what to do with all that snow...I guess just look at it;0) I know you're ready for spring, but I do love looking at the beautiful 'snow' pics. Thanks for sharing.

We had snow on the first day of spring too!! ;-)
Although, it's not that unheard of here in Wisconsin..alas!

Pondside said...

Big sympathy from up here. The end of March should mean daffodils and muscari - not knee deep snow!
I hope that spring arrives soon - for good!

Martha, I can't believe all that snow this time of year! It was a beautiful 70 degrees today in South Carolina!

Spring came in with a bang for you I see. I guess it is late in many places this year.

We had the same thing happen Saturday morning here! Thankfully, it's all melted. Happy spring!

I received a blog award today and decided to accept it. Along with the award came a request to pass it along to 12 other bloggers who "inspire others with positivity and creativity." I choose you!

Congratulations!

Hi Martha
What a lot of snow.
We have had a couple of dry and mild weeks here, but this week all we have seen is rain and grey skies. Never mind, at least it's warming up! Hope it warms up soon for you too, looks like Oliver would love to see the back of the snow!
Best wishes
Dan
