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.

Happy Halloween!

Just take a golden pumpkin
Of quite the largest size,
Cut all 'round the stem, just so
Scrape out the inside below
And cut two holes for eyes.
Now, fix a nose beneath,
And such a great big mouth with teeth,
And there you have a jack-o-lantern!

Then place a candle
Just big enough to light,
And when it flickers, see him blink,
And when it flares up, see him wink,
And smile so broad and bright.
This is the jolliest fellow,
With cheery face so round and yellow,
This funny jack-o-lantern!

Halloween Greetings to one and all!
