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.

Frosty flowers and fruit

I found these absolutely lovely frosty flowers in one of my favorite blogs La Source au Bois. I know it's a little bit 'Christmas' over them but I think one can use frosty sugar flowers all year around and I wanted to show you all the beautiful pictures.

From La Source au Bois Poudrant l'atmosphère de Noël, ils accompagnent délicieusement l'heure du thé. J'aime la fraîcheur des feuilles de menthe sublimée par cette transparence blanche et sucrée qui souligne ainsi l'exquise douceur de certains loukoums. Les pétales givrés des fleurs de saison peuvent orner les tartes qui se parent ainsi d'un masque étonnant rappelant le visage du Printemps d'Arcimboldo. You make these wonderful decorations with fresh dry flowers or fruit, egg white and sugar. The recipe isn't very difficult though my first attempt ended up in the bin. I guess I have to practise a few times....or more.

Frosty Fruits, Figs, Kumquats and Lime fruit aren't they pretty?

Thank you La Source for letting me share these pictures.

Have a nice day to you all/ Tyra

yes, they look very pretty - I guess one needs to practice in order to master it.
This is real treat in winter months so grey as they only could be at this season :)

I have made suger covered flowers quite often.
Sugared flowers keep longer than a fresh flower. Sugared flowers also look delicate and can be used for wedding cakes or other specialty cakes. If edible flowers are sugared they make for a tasty treat, too.
