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 Walk In The Park

We are lucky in our little town to have a city park

Given to the city by W.C. Gunn
And we have a connection at Linderhof to Mr. Gunn
(the giver of the park)
for his son, Reece lived in our home for a couple of years
in 1929 and 1930.
(Lived, not owned.    Reece was not a favorite son!)

It's a pretty park with many of the park structures dating

from the Great Depression
labor provided by the WPA

The dogs are always in heaven when it's park time!

And today, the weather was warm enough to make it perfect park weather!

They run in a small "pack"
smelling, reading mail and leaving messages!

Sometimes vying to see who's first!

There are so many good smells in the park
Besides other dogs, there are ducks and geese,

turkeys and deer!

And although other people play in the park as well
Dolly and Doogie ignore them --
there are all those smells!

Up North . . . it's warmer
But they've had lots of snow!

Grandgirl Lucy playing in her first snow!

Sweet picture of your "grandgirl".
The pictures of this park remind me of the park we use to visit often when we lived in Beloit, Kansas. Yes, you are lucky to have a special park.

Glad the dogs are enjoying being out of doors in the Park!
"Mr. Ed" has gone to the Park the last two days to practice horseshoes!!!
