Linderhof


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 Front Porch


When we moved to Linderhof, the front porch was covered 
in 
indoor/outdoor green carpet
You know the kind . . . artificial turf
is another name for it!

We soon took it out

And a few years later, I painted the porch to look like big stones



But that was several years ago
And, it was "tired"


And worn, very worn!
(In fact, only in the far corner could you see the old "painted" stones!

And so, we moved all of the furniture to the drive
Cleaned the screens and washed the floor

And painted . . . 


A porch floor gray




And after the floor dried, all of the furniture was washed and wiped down
and then moved back inside
It's fall
and so there are no plants on the porch
They're all inside!


With the "haint" blue ceiling
and the grey floor
The porch looks, well, it looks like a porch!

I'm loving my new spiffed up porch!


It's Monday and I'm sharing my porch transformation with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday.

Your porch is fresh and inviting - and if it isn't too cold and blustery, I'd sure enjoy sittitng on one of those awesome porch chairs and chat a bit with you, ok? : - )

Looks so nice, well done!

The color of the porch floor, and the freshness of it, are lovely.
