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.

It's a Jolly Old Day in England

At least in Milford on the Sea, Hampshire. And we've found a lovely bed and breakfast -- The Bay Trees.

The bed in a lovely room overlooking the garden.

And the garden . . . complete with ducks -- is so beautiful and so British!

A place for tea . . .

Wisteria which perfumes the whole garden

A pond for fish (and ducks) and a dove cote (which I covet!)

And the breakfast. A traditional English breakfast with tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, sausages, bacon and a properly cooked egg. Served with toast, tea and orange marmalade!

And the papers at breakfast this morning . . .

Headlined as most papers across the world . . . with the Royal Wedding. A lovely picture of a wonderful couple.

Bay Trees is a terrific bed and breakfast and such a special place to start our stay in England. We're leaving Milford on the Sea, Hampshire, today to head for our cottage in Chitterne, Warminster.

The weather sounds like it will be typically English and we're looking forward to our first "Boot Sale"!!!! (Brolly, of course, in tow!)
