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.

Tulips and Redbuds and Daffodils, Oh My!

At Linderhof
There are:




Oh, My!

Such a pretty spring this year on the prairie!

My choice of tulips was purely unintentional
But love how they pick up the color of the red buds

And the mailbox surrounded by pretty daffodils

It is truly a beautiful spring on the prairie this year!

Your Spring blooms are beautiful. My Redbud has already bloomed out, daffodils, maybe one or two are remaining, and our azalea's are withering. Oh how I wish they lasted longer. We are expecting major thunder storms and a tornado watch coming within the hour so I expect that will do in the azaleas. I did notice yesterday afternoon a few Bearded Irises beginning to bloom, oh JOY.

Martha, I went to a lecture last night that you would have enjoyed. I thought about you as I was listening to the lecture. It was on the costumes of Downton. The guest speaker was Cornelia Powell and there is a display of the costumes of Downton being done sometime in April at the Biltmore. Cornelia will be a guest speaker there as well. This took place at Goodwood Plantation, a preserved museum and gardens now in our area and they also opened the house to an exhibition of porcelain, new and old. Set the table with some of the finest china, stemware, and flatware of previous owners. It was amazing. They never allow photos so I left empty handed on that score. I have been there many times, have also volunteered in the gardens but I never leave there without noticing many things that I have never seen before. It was a fabulous way to spend an evening. I went with three other friends.

Just so you know, I absolutely LOVE your mail box.
