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.

Bark In the Park

That's the name of our soon to be local dog park

Located in this field
(Doogie is showing Daisy around --
Doogie's been here a lot, Daisy not so much)

There will be a big dog portion and a little dog section
separated by a neutral vestibule 

But to have a park we had to raise the money
Co-chairs, Deb and Ken and husband Jim and myself

And through the generous donations of our local dog lovers,
we raised the needed sum . . . for the fence!

So flags were put up where the fence will go

And Doogie went to the park to oversee --
to make sure that Todd and his park crew  were doing it right!

And every project needs a ceremonial ground breaking
And Bark In the Park was no exception . .  .

Doogie had a hard hat -- you can't break ground without one
And he was part of the ground breakers!

It happened last Friday

Hard hats ready for the ground breakers

And we had a crowd

Not just people came out to witness the groundbreaking
But dogs as well

Dogs of all sizes!

And if I'm in charge of something . . . 
There will be food . . . 

People treats 
(gingerbread and iced sugar cookies)
Pup treats
(real dog biscuits)

The groundbreaking was a success
The predicted rain held off until later in the evening.
And we're excited to finally get started on the dog park . . .
which is named

"Bark in the Park"
