Rescuing Hyacinths left from Christmas

I am very happy to rescuing the left over hyacinths from the shop shelves. I have never understood why so many only connect hyacinths with Christmas here in Sweden (maybe in other countries as well?) when they are primarily a spring flower, which has a long season as a forced…

A new year

Welcome 2018! Finally on our way towards more daylight hours, I am about to burst with longing for the garden, flowers, the smell of soil and all the outdoor time. I find the winter darkness becoming harder and harder to cope with and the missing of opportunity to pop out…

Easy made table decoration

You don’t need a lot of flowers and green material to make beautiful table decorations. With just at branch of wax flower and eucalyptus, a few chrysanthemums (I used three), a handfull of green moss and oasis I recently made two flower arrangements for candles and a couple of small vases…

Hyacinths in moss

Hyacinths are so wonderful and hard to be without. They smell winter, Christmas and spring all at the same time, and so easy to arrange in many different ways. To make small moss packets with the bulbs is fun and easy. Goes well with a table setting, or to use in…

November, Pots

Secured pots in the greenhouse

If it wasn’t enough that the voles have eaten most of the bulbs in the garden, the bulbs in pots in the greenhouse aren’t even left alone. However, I believe that mice are responsible for the greenhouse pots. Already when the pots with spring bulbs were put there earlier this…

Saffron biscotti

At the end of November, baking saffron biscotti is a must for me. You simply have to bake them at this time, and they taste just like Christmas, even though saffron isn’t only a Christmas spice. I make a double batch so that they last all of December, and they…

Anemones

In the light of the winter’s frost and also the darker winter grey weather, anemones are fantastic. Filled with life and freshness, they are just what you need on a frost glistering or rainy day at the end of November. Winter luxury with touches of spring. Just a few branches…

Wreath with bulbs

Now when the shops have spring bulbs for sale it is possible to treat yourself with some extras for a wreath or two. I like scilla sibirica, tulips turkestanica and ordinary red onions that all have such beautiful colours. Small ones is easiest to use. To fasten the bulbs on…

Moss and flowers

Pots with moss are so clever and beautiful. You can have them with or without detail on. How I did this: First the low pot was filled with soil, I fill so it has a rounded shape on top. Cushion moss was then laid directly on the soil and watered….

Flowers in October

With one foot still in the summer, it’s nice that there has been no frost yet. And it’s still possible to put together bouquets. And it actually became sunny today when I had a day in the garden. And that it’s still possible to feel the pulse from the garden,…

Bulbs in pots

It is not at all difficult to plant bulbs in pots and I plant quite a few, especially tulips. This year I’m not going to dare to plant tulips in the flowerbeds at all due to not wanting to feed the voles.  Last winter they devastated a big flowerbed and…

Edible bouquet

Red chard, dill crowns, creamy coloured marigolds, purple basil, leaves from celery, beautiful bean pods, some squash flowers and a couple of branches with aronia berries. An edible bouquet in other words. Love that. I’m emptying most of the vegetable path and taking the opportunity to do make something with it for…
