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.

A Thymely Bunny

My little topiary bunny form filled with moss and a creeping time plant.
Nestled in the windowbox that holds a plethora of pansies. Bunnies like to "munch" among the pansies. Even a "thymely bunny"!
And today I also planted the two iron pots in the herb garden.
With an orange mint, some lettuces, some pansies (which are edible) as well as two thymes and a sweet marjoram.
It's twin is in the bed directly diagonally from the other.

They add green and color to the emerging herb garden.

It's nice to get them planted again -- they looked lonely this winter all empty.

Friend Sally and I traveled north to the City to one of my favorite garden stores -- Red Cedar Gardens -- to their "plant a pot" class. I took three -- the bunny (bought there last year) and the two iron urns. We had a grand time and after a grand lunch at a wonderful bistro, Cafe Europia in the Crestwood area of the city.

If you live in or near the City and love gardens and plants and urns, Red Cedar is an amazing place and a favorite stop whenever we go north.

It's Wednesday which means that it's Outdoor Wednesday -- so please join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see what else is happening outdoors.

Your urns look great. I'm trying to decide what to do in mine at our front door. Herbs could be nice. Your little bunny is very cute.

I can't wait to see how that bunny "fills out." Little Jack and I planted two pots of herbs this weekend! I can't wait to start harvesting and cooking with them!

How quickly we've gone through a year - it seems like just a few months ago that you were planting pansies. Our urns have been filled with pansies too - so bright and cheery on the grey days.

Tina said...

What wonderful ideas! I love the bunny topiary. Makes me itch to plant, but we woke up to snow here in CO.

LV said...

I enjoy yard work, love visiting garden centers and really enjoyed your plant feature today.

Cathy said...

Your planted pots are lovely, Martha. We are weeks away from being able to put anything outside. I can't wait to dig in the dirt again.

Helen said...

I wish, I wish, I wish it was time here in Central Oregon for planting. Maybe next month? Love your photos!

Maryrose said...

Happy Outdoor Wednesday
Enjoy

That bunny is dear and if 6 weeks or so he'll be worth is weight in thyme. You always do such a lovely job with your garden, Martha. Have a fabulous day. Blessings...Mary

The Shiny Pebble said...

I am ready to start planting my herbs. And I love the pic on your banner. Is this your lovely home?

Peg @ Bloomfield Farm said...

I love your bunny. Be sure to let us see it after the creeping thyme covers it! You are way ahead of me on the pots... I need to head to Lowes!
