The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Late November....

......and all the wonderful colours are gone. But now you can enjoy the structures. You can see the structures of the garden, trees and landscape, unobtrusive yet dramatic features. The frost turns all things into something interesting, the glass windows of the greenhouse gets fantastic 'roses of ice' and the leaves gets edging of crystals. The sun is low over the horizon especially up here in the north and that makes the colours soft and gentle.
The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden early morning, late November.
'Roses of ice' on the glass windows of the Greenhouse.

Crystal edging on the wintergreen leaves.

Someone lit up my Greenhouse! It's the morning sun of course. Early morning late November.

Looking forward to Advent, to light all the candles, have a glass of Glögg (spiced warm wine) served with ginger biscuits and blue cheese..... hmm cosy

Gorgeous! Och jag längtar så jag nästan spricker tills jag får börja julemysa nästa helg! Jag ska hålla mig. Jag har varit nära att hänga upp min lilla snöboll i fönstret men jag ska stå ut.

Har korrat lite

Love the photograph of the ice roses Tyra! Here today it's 15 degree C and foggy--not normal November weather, but nothing is 'normal' anymore, I guess.

Hi Tyra,
I found you on Lost Roses site and thought I'd drop by for a peek. So happy I did and I'll be back to browse later on when I have more time. I would love to have a small greenhouse, but unfortunately I don't have a nice flat spot to put one so I'll just have to enjoy yours!

Glass of Glogg would be nice, as it starts to freeze around :) I have to say sorry to warm boots and clothes.
Nice pictures :)

What a beautiful greenhouse - and having it lit from inside is even more beautiful!

Thanks for visiting my blog - I am glad to have found yours!

Hello! Perhaps we can even put a few layers on and have a winter feast in the greenhouse? I think that it deserves some warmth and candlelight in the midst of all the darkness. See you next week!

Hello Tyra thank you so much for visiting my garden blog. I just love your beautiful greenhouse. We don't have many people who build such attractive structures here in Brisbane. We have one in our mountain house garden but it's purely just functional (made of weldmesh and covered in a solarmesh plastic). So I drooled at the mouth when I saw yours particularly the shot with the morning sun. Do you grow Hoyas? the Swedes are famous growers of this Genus and I visit several Swedish Websites. Your garden is magnificent and a pleasure to view. You must have many relaxing moments in your garden and greenhouse. Thank you for sharing. Regards Roy
