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.

The April Garden

This year the garden has to be one of the prettiest.
Tulips that didn't bloom last year are in full bloom
And jonquils 
(which I did plant last year)
and pansies and grape hyacinth
(why didn't I plant more of those?)

The herb garden centered with the fountain
now used as a planter

The thatched roof bird table!
A busy place for our feathered friends

And the fairy garden
It's in bloom as well
(and it needs some grape hyacinths for next year!)
(The fairies even have a little red roof potting shed similar to the one in Linderhof's garden)

And those tulips!

They are spectacular this year!

And don't tell, but the lilacs are budding!

Soon Linderhof will be filled with flowers again!

Your garden is beautiful, Martha! I love the brick courtyard and pergola!

Very pretty indeed. Grape hyacinths have a tendency to spread so you'll likely get more next year. I noticed some growing in the alley today behind our neighbors house.

GSS -- we have one growing in our drive -- far away from the rest -- and blooming even!

It's so lovely! I especially like your Fairy Garden.

Oh Martha your garden is just as exciting to look at as your house is! Your garden is wonderful, and that fairy garden in the wheelbarrow is a super cute idea! I have the very same tulips as you do too!
Thanks for sharing all that beauty with us and have a great week!
