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 Sunday in Advent

The first Sunday in Advent

We celebrate with the Advent Wreath
And the lighting of the first Advent Candle

. . . .

And loading the breakfast room stereo with Christmas music

With the smell of orange and clove from the pomanders in the kitchen
To the smell of the fresh greens of the Advent wreath
It's beginning to smell a little like Christmas at Linderhof.

The rest of the Christmas decorations come later
We are not in a hurry anymore to decorate 
Nor do we decorate from cellar to garret
