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.

A Garden Tour


Our little town on the prairie did not have our Garden Tour this year -- but the little Missouri town 20 miles east of us did -- a Garden Walk they called it . . . and it was fun to walk . . .
to the gardens and in the gardens.



A sign on a fence in one of the gardens . . .


A pot of geraniums and a statue!


A cool and welcoming porch!


Not a garden shed but a workshop for him! But it's disguised nicely, isn't it!



And the best garden sign I've ever seen -- it should be in every garden on a tour!!!


And there were birdhouses . . . . and . . .

A pond and . . .


A big vegetable garden . . .


From which they harvest this garden -- alas, it wasn't for free nor was it for sale!

It was a fun tour and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Every time you visit a garden (whether here or in England) you come away with wonderful ideas!

It's Wednesday and I'm sharing this Garden Walk with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

That sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon getting inspired! That shed/workshop is a fab idea! I only wish we had more gardening tours in my area. I can use all the gardening help I can get! *winks* Vanna

I'd love to take a garden tour - up here they always have one on mothers' day weekend, which isn't a great time to slip away for the better part of an afternoon.

So fun to see what other people
create. . .
Thank-you so much for taking us
along on your fun garden tour!

What a lovely way to spend a day! Such sweet gardens, all hiding the hard work that goes into making them! I love the workshop, the owners have made it look so sweet.

I really enjoyed the garden tour and wish we had some near us. Great caution sign..I could use a few of those in my back yard. :)
Hope you had a great Independence Day,
Babs

Great garden - thanks for sharing! Green for that glider - ours went to glider heaven two years ago and we've yet to replace it. My husband would prefer the man cave shed, though. He was inspired after seeing how author John McCullough writes in one set away from the main house. Nice.
Joy!

I love to look at other people's gardens! Love the pond!

We don't have garden tours or walks here in France which is why I loved seeing so many when we were in Herefordshire in May.
Love the birdhouses and the frog sign, I want everything!

Lovely tour! Alas, our garden tour was when we were on vacation. Of course, we spied lovely gardens at every turn in California!

Best,
Bonnie

Like the male hideaway.
We almost did a town's gardens tour while away but then decided we did not have the time.

Fun if one has the time but so many other things to do on holiday.

Hi Martha,

Thank you for sharing the pictures of the charming gardens you visited. I harvested my onion "crop" this week -- they were tucked in a square yard or so of a raised bed usually reserved for roses. ;)

Loved your previous post about tea in the UK. The desserts and sandwiches looked great (almost as good as some of the things you serve your guests at Linderhof!).

Warmest regards,
Bill

Hi, visiting from Outdoor Weds. Going to local Garde Tours is my #1 favorite thing to do. I recently went on one and saw some gorgeous gardens and fun creative ideas. Gardening is my passion. Thanks for sharing.
