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.

Summer Flowers

We love flowers.
Both in the garden and in the house.
Summer means loads of flowers both out and in!

We are generous with bouquets around the house.
I'd like to live with that many flowers inside
all year long.
But, alas, my pocketbook won't allow it!

But I indulge my passion in the summer.

We're home from welcoming new grand girl Lucy into the world
And catching up
With laundry and mail and weeds and watering!

No big bouquets

But sometimes bouquets don't have to be big.

A wee Asiatic Pheasant cream pitcher
With garden marigolds
And garden sage.

We love to incorporate herbs into summer bouquets.

Flowers inside make me smile.

Congratulations on the new Grand Girl - and I think you're right - bouquets DON'T have to be big to bring one pleasure...

Just lovely, your pitcher creamer is perfect with those gorgeous flowers!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Very pretty. The orange looks great in the blue container and seems perfect for summer.

That photo just looks so pretty on my sidebar - I can imagine how pretty the real thing must look on your table!
