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.

The Pink House

The week before Thanksgiving Daughter Sarah and I spent it in Savannah and Charleston -- a mother/daughter trip, a long ago birthday gift, and a reward for finally going through knee surgery.

It was a glorious week as we walked the sidewalks of Savannah and Charleston, ate seafood galore (a rarity on the prairie -- but let me tell you about our steaks!!) and had a grand time.

Neither of us had been to either city so it was an adventure for both of us. We both loved the architecture of both cities.

A favorite house that's now a restaurant -- that, alas, we did not go to was this beauty! Facing one of Savannah's many squares and actually within walking distance of our historic district hotel.

It's certainly pink and it called the Pink House. It's Pink Saturday so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

What a lovely trip with your daughter Sarah! I have some relatives that live in the area and they wouldn't trade it to come back to the prairie for anything. They, also, love the seafood! Thank you for such a lovely "touch of pink" this morning. I've been seeing way too much red and green.

What a sweet treat for you and your daughter. I hope there will be some more posts from that part of the country. It's one of my favorite places!

What a lovely adventure the two of you shared. I know Charleston well having lived there before our move to the midwest. I used to meet the shrimp boats--talk about fresh! We visited Savannah often. The two cities are different and alike. November is a good time to visit. Hope you'll share more of your trip!

Charleston is my favorite city ever, and I love Savannah, too.
