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.

Outside Looking In

There is something magical when you're in the garden at dusk and look into the sunroom -- alight with the lights from the chandelier. It's a magical world --
You can see into the sunroom, see the table and chairs and the plants . . .It's almost like peeking into someone's life -- only it is our life that we're peeking into!
I find this one of the prettiest ways to view the sunroom -- on the outside looking in!

It's Wednesday which means that it's time for Outdoor Wednesday -- so please join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see other outdoor activities this Wednesday!

Looking into your sunroom is pretty to us too!
I have always loved looking in windows after dark when we are driving down the road. Is that bad? I think everyone does.

Very pretty view of your sunroom. The warm glow of light in windows viewed form the outside is always so eye catching!

The sunroom looks warm and inviting to me!

To answer Rhonda's question: "It's not bad to take a quick peek into windows bathed in light against the night! I love doing it--and thinking about the people inside."

Best,
Bonnie

I, too, enjoyed the view of your sunroom from "outside looking in"!

Now that two others have "confessed", I confess also that I enjoy quick peeks into lighted windows when I stroll in the evening...

I love the golden glow from a window at dusk. Often, when I walk the dog in early evening, I look back at the house to enjoy its rosy glow.
The view into your sunroom is enchanting.

So welcoming. Very cozy looking. I used to love seeing my parents home lit at night when I had to go out to check on something in the yard. Being in the country, we didn't have blinds blocking all the windows so the light shined out.

It is lovely!
One of my favorite times of day to take walks has always been the evening. The houses with their lights on look so cozy and inviting.
