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.

Out In The Garden

After the Farmers Market,
I've been out in the garden
Tidying, alas, not planting!

The garden is really full
And there isn't space for much

But May is a beautiful time in the garden
The roses and the peonies and the wisteria are in bloom!

The William Baffin Rose
Soars to the sky and is loaded with pink roses
I planted it early on in the garden
With a thought -- with the rose being bookended by wisteria
And this, is the first year, that it has happened

For the wisteria on both sides of the rose is beautiful!
Purple, pink, purple!

It was so lovely out that after a morning of garden work . . .

We enjoyed lunch in the garden

Nothing special,

Just egg salad sandwiches with garden dill and a big glass of icy tea!

Your William Baffin rose looks spectacular. I too have been spending a lot of time in the garden especially since our heat and humidity will kick in soon, the joys of living in N FL. This morning DH and I enjoyed breakfast on the screened porch and I am now getting ready to spend the rest of the afternoon in my garden. Your impromptu lunch looked delicious.
