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 Garden . . . . Through The Years


The garden at Linderhof has been a 32 year work in progress
And with most gardens, it's still in progress!


Looking at the garden from the side yard . . . 
The sundial is on a water fountain which used to be in Gunn Park
Significant because the son of the benefactor of that park lived in our house
for 3 years in the late 20s and early 30s

The garden started as lawn . . . . just a green space that needed to be mowed
But I've always wanted a four square mostly herb garden
In 1997, I began my plans


May - 1997 Laying out bricks to determine the individual beds
and where the brick paths were to go


Summer 1997 - we laid the bricks for the path
(it's summer because the watering house is out and the plants have grown!)



2020 - But the beds are raised --
not because I'm older or infirmed
But because we own a digger dog
Who delights in digging up any plant in the ground!
The very tall raised beds prevent that!
And I find it is much easier to garden when the plants are waist high!



1998 - Pretty flowers in the main flower bed at the time.
We had just built the arbor running along the garage to the house
No fence to enclose the garden


2002 - And put up a fence we did
A privacy fence!


2020 - That fence has aged well
There's a pond in the middle of that flower bed
And mostly day lilies grow around it


 1998  - From the back of the lot looking toward the house


2009 - From the back of the lot looking toward the house
Wait, where are the two little windows?
There are sliders there now!!!!
Our addition -- the breakfast room which overlooks the garden!


 2020 - under the pergola looking towards the house


2009 - On the terrace looking towards the garden through the arbor


 2020 - On the terrace looking through the arbor toward the garden



2009 - One of the years Linderhof's garden was on tour -- we had a pond built
And a cat fountain installed
And we bought a water lily!


2020 - The pond surrounded by mature day lilies . . . and that little water lily
fills the pond!     And it's only half -- about five years ago, I divided it and shared it with a friend . . . 

Am I finished?
Is a gardener every really finished?

I'm planning fall bulbs to plant
putting in a raspberry patch
and 
a small vegetable garden

Where?

You'll have to come back and see for yourself if I do it!

That is a lot of work you have done on your yard. I know you enjoy it. Lovely.

Your garden has evolved over the years. So many special spots to sit and enjoy. I love ponds. I would have a koi pond if I could. Not practical where I live. It's kind of nice that it is never considered finished...and that you can always have a wish for whats next.

WOW!! This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH MATCH 2020, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Dr voodoo on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard or learn anything about magic before.. No body would have been able to convince me about magical spells, not until Dr voodoo did a marvelous work for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me in the same 24 hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of words and joy, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Dr voodoo you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful woman once again.. here is his email voodoospelltemple66@gmail.com you can also add Dr.voodoo on whatsApp +2348140120719
