I can see it all from above, am I flying…floating, sailing through air? It is nice, I like it, don’t wake me up.
Lovely December lights, daylight and candlelights, mild and warm. When the sun comes out in December it's a 'golden day' I just love it and I so understand the ancient people that worshiped the sun and Ra the sungod of Heliopolis.
I wonder if we will get any snow for Christmas?
We did have some wonderful winter days in November but since then it has been reallt mild and awfully dark outside. Look at my post from the 22th of November, those picture looked almost like the Christmas cards I use to send, that is precisely how I wish my garden to look like during the winter. Hello up there...I wish you to come back with my magical winter land.
'Kung Bore' our King of winter, come back and give as a winter cover thick and light as eiderdown!
Make my garden clean, quiet and glimmer with snow, please!
This book is amazing with almost 350 pages filled with goodies for a greenhouse fan like me. The photos are numerous and very beautiful.
Claus Dalby takes us with him to visit various greenhouses, small and large and even enormous ones. Old, stylish or contemporary, just a wonderful mix of greenhouses. We also and that a find especially interesting meet the wonderful people behind the gardens and greenhouses, the owners themselves. Claus also show us the surrounding hedges, small paths and fences around the greenhouses.
The second book is ‘Den levende haven’ (The Living Garden)
This is a more typical garden book about gardening of course, about plants, how to grow them and primarily a very inspiring book perfect for cold and dark winter evenings.

In the beginning of the book you can follow Claus Dalby into his garden and Oh lala what a garden!
Hm...I just had to add a picture from my garden...it is from last spring.
The only negative things about these books are that when you finally are falling asleep then 350 pages on your face it is heavy stuff!
Chiliguiden Habanero - Kungen av Chili. Habanero tillhör släktet Capsicum chinense som är en av fem chiligrupper. Namnet är lite förvirrande och det finns tre problem med det; Valet av namn på släktet, missbruket av namnet "habanero" samt förvirringen kring alla smeknamn.Släktet Capsicum chinense namngavs 1776 av Nikolaus von Jacquin, en holländsk fysiker som under åren 1754 till 1759 samlade plantor i Karribien åt kejsare Fransis I. Text ifrån Chiliguiden rekommenderar denna sajten om du vill veta mer om chilies!
Det är något magiskt över denna blåa timme. Ett lugn, en tystnad. Slutet på dagen och början på en afton. Då är det skönt att bara sitta stilla och njuta. Speciellt en sådan här härlig lördag då man inte jobbar, inte har några planer och den dagen då den första snön kom. Underbart.
Have a joyful weekend/Tyra
Bulgarian heirloom pepper, traditionally used for roasting but also a great sweet pepper. I eat it 'au naturelle' like an apple same as a said about my green favorite Poblano Ancho Gigantea. Flesh is brilliant bright -red and very sweet. Tapered fruits that are 2" at the shoulder by 6" long it says in the catalog but my peppers are just 12 cm, ripens from green to brown to bright red. 85 days from transplant with perfect conditions that is.
If you live in US. look into Brenckle's Farm and Greenhouses there you find a great mix of seeds and plants unfortunatly they cannot ship to Europe. ( good for my wallet)

…or perhaps you already know him?
He was actually in Tyra's Garden in May...yeah, I know his LBJ deid in -73 but this one is in fact still alive, barely alive, he is resting in the greenhouse.
I was looking in at Jan’s Always Growing this morning and she wrote about Amaryllises.
In my effort to have more blooming perennials, for the last few years, I have been planting amaryllis bulbs in the garden.
Mr President Johnson in Tyra's Garden! WOW what an honour Mr. president.
When it suddenly struck me that I haven’t planted any of my Amaryllises that I have so carefully saved, nor I have I bought and planted any new…I just totally forgot. I wonder if I will get any in time for Christmas now?
Here is a favorite among my Amaryllises, President Johnsson.
~ The intense smell of autumn harvest in this delicious treat slightly tweaked from The Northwoods Table.
