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

May is the start of Garden Tour Season

Communities open wide their garden gates
for various groups
which use the tours as a fundraiser.

This Saturday, 

 Held their Garden Tour
Friend Priscilla and I went
And came back with ideas . . . 

Plant Labels

Flowers and water stations

Fairy Gardens

Herbs and Lettuces

Do you ever wonder what to do with the old big satellite dish?
A perfect solution!

And there were vendors and I brought home

A potting shed for the fairies

Which is a replica of the one in Linderhof's garden

We stopped mid tour for lunch
at my favorite restaurant in Paola

I had the sauerbraten
And mashed potatoes
And red cabbage

I took food home
And was too full for dessert!

It was a fun day
This first garden tour of 2013!

It's Sunday and I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

Hi Martha, I enjoyed the garden tour items you featured, especially the fairy gardens. I love the little hut you purchased for your own fairy garden.
Hugs, Beth

What a wonderful afternoon spent with a friend on a Garden Tour!!!
I am always amused at the Fairy Gardens, some are miniature and others more child~size. Guess it's all personal choice! I loved seeing the herbs!!!
First trip to the lower level with sirens blarring today here on the Prairie...guess Tornado Season has arrived!!!
