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.

Fall . . .

With cooler temperatures
And Ronnie Brown's pumpkins at the Farmer's Market
it's time to decorate Linderhof for fall

In the dining room, rusty color mums in a silver bowl and one of Ronnie's little pumpkins

In the living room, the Waterford biscuit barrel filled with candy corn

the first of the bags we buy in October and November!

And outside, a big pumpkin and one of Brian Holt's mums, full of bud and ready to burst into bloom!
The begonia in a red seems more false than the pink variety --
which is why we chose red!
The leaves, too, add to the fall look!
Unfortunately, their brown leaves
rather than the prettier red and orange!

It's Monday and Im sharing my changes for fall with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday.

Hi Martha,
How lovely, I really like your table centerpiece and your outdoor shot, nice bench. Candy corn is one of my favorites this time of year. Thanks for sharing Fall with us at your beautiful home.
Happy Monday!

Looking very nice. Enjoying good weather currently. Work in the garden is slowing. Just wish it would rain.
