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.

The Third Rite of Autumn -- The Bulbs

We've been planting bulbs every fall for the last 25 years
Linderhof abounds with them in the spring
Some years we plant more than other years


With my trug, a good pair of gloves and the trowel made by Jim's father 60 years ago,
I'm ready!

And next Spring


I'll be rewarded with big bouquets of these


Which brighten the inside of Linderhof
As well as the outside!


It's Wednesday and I'm sharing the Third Rite of Autumn with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

Oh my you have a beautiful home. I can just picture all those blubs blooming. I have a friend in Liberty MO and I just visited her last fall. I am in love w/ your area and plan to visit more often. Clarice

I do not plant bulbs every year; I try in the spring to picture where I am "needing" tulips, crocus, snowdrops, etc. and then order an appropriate number for fall planting. Your daffodils are lovely and make me nostalgic for spring.
