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.

Weather setback!

Hohoo, Yohooo spring where did you go.....?

Cool and pale, true Scandinavian colours, the greenhouse in Tyra's Garden March 2008.
I thought we were going to have an early spring but oh... no. Someone up there decided differently. Last week we got about 10 cm of snow! Yes it's pretty but not now, snow is perfect during the Christmas holiday and the months of January and February that's it! Now we have passed Easter and March is soon coming to an end and I want to see spring flowers, buds and small leaves. When it looks like this I can't ever take out my seedling to the greenhouse. My veranda is full to the limit of its capacity and a little bit more....seedlings everywhere. OK I'll stop whining and show you a nice bouquet of flowers instead.
Tulipa and Ranunculus aren't they just beautiful together?

Veronicas bukett.

Underbara tulpaner som faktiskt liknar pioner, så bedårande vackra och särskillt tillsammans med dessa vita ranuklerna.

Nu hörde jag på väderprognosen att det skulle bli blidväder till helgen, vi får hålla tummarna att Kung Bore släpper sitt grepp.

Don't be a stranger do comment below - Skriv en rad!

Kära Tyra, jag skulle kunna begå brott för ett växthus som ditt....sover redan middag i mina drömmar på en träsoffa på eftermidda'n.
Stackars min make den dagen jag planterar idén om ett nytt växthus.
Vänliga hälsningar, Ingela
