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.

A Grand Old Flag


It's Flag Day
The commemoration of the day that we adopted the stars and stripes
as our national flag in
1777


The big flag always flies at Linderhof
But today we've added little flags to the front planters

And for dessert tonight in the garden


Will be a flag pie
Cherry pie with stars and stripes
A red, white and blue table
white lace tablecloth and geraniums
blue plates and napkins
red pie


If you're not a fan of cherry, any red fruit pie would do --
rhubarb or strawberry

It's a different twist on a lattice crust
To make a patriotic pie
for Flag Day!

I have the flags flying, and now all I need it one of those delicious flag pies. It would be even more special in your beautiful garden.
Happy Flag Day!
