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.

Help Our Fort -- Please Vote!!!

It's blue skies over our Fort. And I'm asking for your help.

Vote TODAY for Fort Scott National Historic Site

We've made the short list of 24 for the 8 Wonders of Kansas History and I'd love to see our beloved Fort named one of those 8 Wonders.

To vote:

Vote early and vote often
(you can vote three times per email address)

You don't have to live on the prairie to vote -- it's open to everyone so I would appreciate your help to make sure that our Fort is one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas History. Please read about the candidates -- it does give an idea of what an interesting historical story Kansas weaves.

And you can't just vote for our Fort -- you have to vote for 7 others as well.

Because the sky is blue over the Fort, it's Blue Monday so please visit Smiling Sally to see other blues this Monday!

Martha, I voted! Good luck! There look to be some very interesting historical sites in KS. I'm in Iowa and I think it'd make a nice trip to come and explore.
Blessings, Beth

I love visiting Linderhof. I'd be happy to vote to preserve your wonderful fort. We used to live in Charleston, S.C. where there are so many preserved bits of history. I'm not sure I can vote since I don't live in Kansas. If I can, just let me know. Those treasures are for all Americans!
