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 Garden Tour


Saturday, a group of members of the Bourbon County Master Gardeners and Garden Club traveled south to Pittsburg to attend the garden tour sponsored by the Zone 6 Garden Club. They hold their tour in even years -- on Father's Day Saturday and we hold our tour in odd years on Father's Day weekend.

Last year, we were in a gardening frenzy as the gardens of Linderhof were on tour -- this year, we were able to relax, travel to Pittsburg and enjoy being a garden guest rather than a gardener!

It was a great tour and the members of the Zone 6 Garden Club do a great job. All of the gardens were great and, of course, I had camera in tow. Pictures from the tour . . .









It's Wednesday which means that we're all over at Susan's A Southern Daydreamer -- see what else is Outdoors this Wednesday!

love the tour...and how nice that you were able to just enjoy this year....

we are a mere Zone 3 ...... so there are a lot of things we can't grow...and some we are crazy enough to try........ we actually have had our two Carol Mackie Daphne bushes for years...and only this past winter was it strange enough to kill off a couple of branches... cold but not enough snow or moisture I think is what did it..... I think they are in a protected spot quite near our big blue spruce so have done okay up til now... ... hope they continue...I love the scent of the little tiny blooms....
