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.

Master Gardener . . . In Training

We've been visiting grand girl Lucy
(and her parents)
in Minnesota the last week

It's in Minnesota
And you've heard of the
"Duluth Trading Company"?
Well, although we were in Minneapolis and not Duluth,
we did go by their brick and mortar store

My purchase?

 My pair of 2015 gardening gloves
Only $4.95!

And I put them to use before I got home

For it's every Nana's responsibility to teach their grandchildren about gardening
(My grandmother taught me)

And she helped me plant the pansies for the flower box in front

Pretty pansies
(That got a good watering from the rain tonight!)

That will look pretty in a week or so
When they perk up and start to grow.
(I felt today as if I were in Kansas --
the wind blew so!   It certainly took a brave pansy
to withstand the drying winds of this afternoon)

That is just great. They need to make tiny garden gloves for those gardeners in training. :-)

She's adorable!

I love the gloves. I think I may need them myself, since I already wore mine out.
