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.

Show Me Your Greenhouse - Claus Dalby

This post"Show me your greenhouse/Vis Mig Dit Drivhus - Claus Dalby" was originally uploaded by Tyra

 Show Me Your Greenhouse
 - Vis mig dit drivhus

The first garden book to be the read this year was a book from Claus Dalby. In this impressive and heavy plus five hundred pages book, we follow him on a garden tour. The author takes us on a grand garden tour through Scandinavia, visiting hundreds of garden and of course the same amount of astonishing greenhouses.

Claus Dalby has this amazing eye for what to shoot with him camera. That really impressed me on his visit in my garden last fall. He registered in a blink of an eye all interesting items worth detecting in my garden on that very day. He saw exactly those things that I wanted him to notice, most astonishing.  If it was plants or arrangement he caught them all with his camera.

After having read the book I have one greenhouse that really caught my heart and that is the greenhouse at Hørsholm in Denmark. The owners to this magnificent greenhouse are Margit and Knut-Georg Engen. The greenhouse was built in 1948 and has an area of 60 square meters. I love the design it is elegant yet not too extravagant it still looks like a greenhouse should look like if you know that I mean.

If you are looking for a greenhouse design or have a general interest of Scandinavian interior designs this is a good book to start off with. I know that it isn’t in your language but I think it can be of great help anyway as it is most inspirational.

Nu har jag läst årets första trädgårdsbok och det är en
riktig "tegelsten" från Claus Dalby. Som alla de övriga av Claus andra böcker är det här en
underbar bok att bläddra i, han är riktigt bra fotograf och skriver rakt och
lättbegripligt.
 Han har en fantastisk förmåga att se alla de små detaljerna och det var jag verkligen
fascinerad av vid vårt möte i höstas. Han var så snabb på att upptäcka alla de
små "godbitarna" som fanns att fånga just den dagen i min potager. Om det
så gällde växter, rätta vinklar och alla små vrår så såg han vad jag brukar se och
fånga med mitt öga i min trädgård.

Engen's greenhouse in Hørsholm




Mitt favoritbesök var i det ”Engenska Växthuset” i Hørsholm.
Där bor Margit och Knut-Georg (vilket fint namn, två gamla kunganamn ihopsatta)
Växthuset är från 1948 och har en ansenlig yta på 60kvm, alldeles perfekt,
vilken dröm! Högt i tak och fin nockvinkel. Det här växthuset blev absolut min
favorit när jag samlat alla intryck från boken.

This is a picture that reminds me of a picture by the Swedish artist Hanna Pauli and the picture is "Breakfast time". The photo of my greenhouse looks like it is taken on an early morning in Juni. I can imagine myself carrying out a tray with the breakfast, to enjoy it out in the green. But it is not, it is actually taken by Claus Dalby at his visit in september last fall.

The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden

Här är en bild av mitt växthus som Claus Dalby har tagit och den påminner mig så om Hanna Paulis målning, Frukostdags. Det känns som en försommar morgon där jag precis är i färd med att duka upp till frukost i det gröna men i själva verket är det faktiskt en eftermiddag i september månad.


Om Frukostdags 

"Det är en fin sommarmorgon. Solen skiner. En kvinna vaknade imorse och beslutade sig för att göra frukost till hela familjen ute. 
De bor i en fin by. Omkring deras hus finns en liten skog. Kvinnan tänker att hon ska göra frukost i skogen.  
Hon ställer bordet och stolarna under ett stort träd. Sen dukar hon bordet. När hon är klar väcker hon barnen och sin man. Kvinnan ser glad ut
"

Hello from England Tyra,

I have so enjoyed your blog for some time now, and finally started one myself at the end of last year. Your greenhouse and garden are stunning! I too am passionate about my garden, especially my kitchen garden where I grow all our own vegetables and fruit. Thank you for your inspiration!

What a beautiful looking book, which I am very tempted to get. My mother is Swedish, so she can translate for me!

Longing for Spring......

I absolutely love following your blog. Plus that greenhouse building in your garden is beautiful! It has always been my dream to have my own greenhouse. Maybe some day.
