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.

More Mums

Usually, I get a big mum plant
to place in the front of the house
Close to the pumpkins

But, alas, this year,
pickings at this time of October were slim!

But I found little mums

Which I put in the upstairs window boxes

Eight small mum plants
Which gives a bit of fall to the front of Linderhof . . .

with the pumpkins below.

Oh Martha you need to sit a scarecrow next to the mums. :-)

Oh, Lucy -- if I could find (or make) a scarecrow as clever as the ones at the Arboretum I would -- next year maybe!
