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.

Changes . . .


Easter Monday finds changes at Linderhof . . . the eggs and the lambs go back in the cabinet for another year . . .

And in the breakfast room . . .


The lambs on the table are replaced by . . .


The candlesticks which flank an Easter present hydrangea.  

And in the dining room . . .


The Easter egg tree is replaced by . . .


Leftovers from Easter dinner -- a silver basket full of honeysuckle and a lace tea cloth that served as our tablecloth for Easter dinner.

And my great great grandmother's eggs in the antique Asian blue and white bowl on the coffee table . . .


Goes back to it's home in the secretary . . .


Where it centers the middle shelf with other mostly antique Asian blue and white treasures.

But the biggest change of all . . .


Is the honeysuckle in bloom over the arbor in front of Linderhof.    My header was taken in 2008 and I am amazed at how much the front of Linderhof has changed in those four years.     The honeysuckle has grown leaps and bounds as has the liarope!  

It is fun comparing pictures of Linderhof 2008 and Linderhof 2012!

It's Monday and my changes are being shared with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday

Sounds like you are on top of things!! So admire that! Your honeysuckle arbor looks wonderful; isn't spring delightful this year?! Winter wasn't too bad either!! Donna

Love it! When the holiday is over - it's over! Wish I could get that point through to some neighbors who still have up St. Patty's day, one has Fall, and yes - someone has a Christmas wreath while another still has icicle lights along the roof line! Drives me NUTS!! Thankfully- we're just renting - enJOY undecorating and letting the house breathe until the next holiday :)

Hi Martha,

Wow, your honeysuckle looks fantastic! I bet that attracts lots of hummingbirds. You have such lovely antique furniture and treasures. I love the barley twist candlesticks. I'm putting some on my wish list.

Thanks for sharing the pretty vignettes and have a great week!
