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 Spring Garden

My favorite garden is probably the Spring Garden
Winter is so brown here
We don't get much snow to cover the brownies
And the garden is really ugly in the winter
Because it's so BROWN!

But come April and the garden comes alive . . . 

Even the fairies have been tidying up their garden.
They planted lettuce and pansies and creeping thyme!

My favorite white daffodil -- Thalia
I simply adore their bloom!

Pansies hold a special place in my heart 
Especially appropriate since one name for them is heart's ease
These are a new variety
a perennial variety
They are cold hardy to -30
But I'm wondering if our hot and dry summers will do them in.
It's a $40 experiment and I hope it works!
They are absolutely adorable!

I love the little grape hyacinths
And I've just ordered 50 more to plant this fall . . .
And am pondering if I should make that 100!

Violas in purple
They, like pansies are high on my list of spring flowers
And I spend too much money on them considering
that they last only until June when I have to replace with summer annuals!

The tulips this year are amazing!
I think there are tulips there that I've not seen before!
These come back every year unlike most hybrid tulips that are great for one season, passable for the second and then they're gone.
I rarely plant tulips because they are pricey and I think of them as one season of bloom!
But not these guys -- they've been here since the first time I planted bulbs!

But, however, since I'm not a garden cataloguer, I don't know what kind they are to reorder and plant!

Tulips and daffodils in the bed by the fence.
I'm thinking that I will turn this space over to all bulbs!
That would be amazing!

With the flowers in the spring garden, garden flowers once again grace my tables.
And I so love to have garden flowers indoors
Especially after a cold winter like this years.
