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.

Faery Gardens

Do you believe in faeries? We certainly do at Linderhof and we have a faery garden at Linderhof and we admire faery gardens elsewhere.

When I think of faery gardens I think of one cottage for a faery to live in . . .

but there are sometimes faery villages . . .
Where faeries gather and like an English village, the houses are all different . . .

With a church and a one story thatched roof cottage (like the one at Linderhof)

And a two story one . . . and do you see the bit of blue in the left sided upstairs window? It's a faery!

A charming small cottage

A grander house -- two story with great gardens!

Faeries are out and about in this garden!

A scene from the faery village . . .

These lovely faery gardens are at Red Cedar. Lots of little lovelies to decorate faery gardens are in the shop. We've bought some and admire others every time we go. I do think, this year, that Linderhof's faery garden needs some additions!

It's Wednesday and time for Outdoor Wednesday. So please join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

I'm inspired by your Faery Garden and I think that is such an interesting conversation piece for a garden. I may just have to start me a Faery Garden myself........we'll talk. Red Cedar is not showing any of their Faery "things" on their website but I did a google. Came up with some interesting things but I do like the little houses in the pics at Red Cedar.
