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 Glow of Mother's Day on a Tuesday

It was a great Mother's Day
My gift from Daughter Sarah and her family

a great cookbook!
Which came early and which I opened
(we don't usually do that but I didn't know it was a gift . . . so I got it early!)

Sunday after church
Husband Jim treated me to Brunch

Our favorite Fort Scott restaurant

 I had an omelet
(It was brunch, after all!)

I'm a gardener as well as a Mom
Gardeners think of

cow manure as a great gift

Or bags and bags of mulch!

Or, of course, a much wanted plant

Thusly, this gift is not strange
At least not for a gardener

I have a garden cart but it's plastic and cumbersome

This is a Worx aerocart

Which I put together!
(without instructions I might add -- of course, it
took me longer because there wasn't any instructions)

It's supposed to do all of this!
(Not that I have any spare refrigerators to move!
but now I can buy 50 pound bags of birdseed and the big bags of dirt!)

I think it looks handsome
It does have bells and whistles which I haven't figured out yet
(but there are instructions on how to use the bells and whistles)
I plan tomorrow to move my big pot plants
with my new "toy"!

I like your new cart. That should be very helpful. You'll have to get some 'action shots' with it. :-)

What great gifts (anxious to hear about the cookbook, have not seen it) and I love, love, love that wheel barrow. I think I may have to go searching for that.
