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.

ABC Wednesday 'A'


A as in Appleblossom, AZURE and Anthroposophist.


This pictures is taken far, far from the Côte d'Azur it is taken on a warm and lovely day in May in Åkerby (Uppland). The pink appleblossom goes well with the Azure blue sky I think. By the way have you started with the pruning of your apples yet? Or are you doing like the Anthroposophists does, using the J.A.S pruning method? Generally I do, but if there is very much that has to be done I take both methods that year. Early spring and J.A.S pruning.


Azure is a blue color on the HSV color wheel at 210 degrees. Azure is the hue that is halfway between blue and cyan. Its complementary color is orange. Azure is a near synonym for the color blue. Commonly it refers to a bright blue, resembling the sky on a bright, clear day.
The term azure derives from the Persian لاژورد (lazhward), which was the name of a place in modern Turkestan known for its deposits of lapis lazuli (“stone of lazhward”). The word was adopted into Old French by the twelfth century. From the French it was adopted into English as a near synonym for "blue". The first recorded use of azure as a color name in English was in 1374. wikipedia Azure

Blue is my favorite color and I love SKY BLUE, the blue of a sunny coastal day, with the ocean reflecting the azure sky.

Vilket otroligt vackert foto! Blommorna lyser fantastiskt mot den tokblå himlen. :)
Ha det gott och tack för kommentaren hos mig.

Hej Tyra


Jag håller med dig om att det ser kallt ut. Stolen är inte min. Tänk dig sitta på den och älven flyter precis nedanför kanten en varm sommarkväll. Det får den uppleva som sitter på stolen.
Blommorna på trädet är ju fantastiska snart är det vår.
Tack för kommentaren.
Jag skall försöka komma ihåg din önskan.
Ha en bra dag
Gunilla
