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.

First Snow

We had our first snow on the prairie today

Not much 
In fact our Minnesota daughter would call it a "dusting"
But to us it was a real snow!

Snow on the prairie is usually in January and February
We occasionally have December snows
but seldom do we have a White Christmas!

And a November snow is practically unheard of
Especially in the middle of November!

And I do love snow
(I'm a December baby after all)
As long as I'm inside
with a cup of tea and a fire!

The snow today had me looking at snows past at Linderhof

Some are more than others!
But I so enjoy the garden dressed in white in the winter!

It's Monday and I'm sharing my snow with Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosiac Monday

Ahh snow always makes things look so wonderful, as long as you can enjoy from inside with a cuppa!

We got our first snow today here on the Plains of West Texas. A little early...and not much snow...but wet, non the less....and COLD. BRRRR...
I, too, am a December girl...mine is on New Year's Eve...when is yours?

Hi Martha,
I was thinking of you when I set up my blue and white tea. In fact I always think of you when I use it.
It started snowing here on the Island last Friday and it hasn't stopped. Waaay too early for it! Your pomanders are a wonderful idea and I bet they do smell heavenly.

Glad to find another that likes snow (I'm a Feb. baby) although I've never been into outdoor sports other than skating. I can't imagine living in a climate that wouldn't get the white Christmas that we love.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
