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.

Red Cedar Gardens

One of my favorite places is Red Cedar Gardens. It's a great place to visit -- the gardens are amazing and an even better place to shop. Ricky aways has the best plants and garden accoutrements many of which find their way to Linderhof's garden!

It was a pleasure last week to teach two Cooking With Herbs Classes in this wonderful garden!

I shared the classes, now I'd like to share the garden!!!

A great sign on the gate -- I'd love to have one just like it!!!

A new bird bath this year -- I've not priced it but I think it is stunning!!! However, there is no room at Linderhof for this wonderful piece!

Another bird bath with a "creature" in the middle -- love how there is always something to look at which makes the garden pretty even at this time of the year when there isn't much blooming.

I have this same planter but mine's not on a pedestal nor does a frog live in the middle -- what a great idea!

Don't saw down that old dead tree -- instead put a wonderful thatched roof bird feed on top!

A wonderful fountain . . .

A collection of statuary squirrels, a wee sundial and a pot of ferns on a wonderful concrete bench.

If you live within driving distance of the Kansas City area, you need to visit Red Cedar. And, if you do, tell them Martha sent you!!!

It's Wednesday and time for Outdoor Wednesday with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. Now that spring has sprung, there is so much to do and see outside!!! I'm sure there will be some beautiful posts this Wednesday!

A lovely garden for sure! I am so anxious to get out to our garden center and put some color in the yard. But, I know we could still have some very cold weather and am trying to restrain myself.

Martha: Have you seen the campania website?

I wish I was close enough to visit that garden (and yours). We won't be doing much work in the garden for a while, I'm restraining myself from jumping in a cleaning off mulch. We're still dropping well below freezing here. So, I'm living vicariously through other people's gardens.

What a lovely place to visit. I enjoy visiting gardens like this for the inspiration they offer. I love the idea for the birdhouse on the dead tree. Thanks!

Calling by as an Outdoor Wednesday Participant, it is interesting to share a piece of your world. I like the tree trunk with a bird house.
