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.

Rose Petals

The William Baffin rose was beautiful this year -- loaded and loaded with pink blooms.

But as the blooms wan, they fall . . .
Around the cat and the fish pond . . . . the rose petals decorating the side of the pond.

Instead of a snow shower, we have a shower of rose petals . . .Alas, the roses are almost gone and my chore tomorrow is to collect rose petals for potpouri making.
Unfortunately, many of the petals fell to earth -- decorating Linderhof's garden with pink!

It's Saturday which means that it's Pink Saturday -- please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see what other pinks there are this Satuarday!

I love those explorer roses, developed in Morden, Manitoba. I've had a Henry Frobisher in the past and would love to have another two or three.

Martha, I was just yesterday bemoaning the fact that the first huge flush of roses is over- our pinks were amazing this year too. Potpourri sounds like a wonderful idea
