Hibernation is a state of inactivity and metabolic depression in animals, characterized by lower body temperature, slower breathing, and lower metabolic rate. Hibernating animals conserve energy, especially during winter when food is short, tapping energy reserves, body fat, at a slow rate. It is the animal’s slowed metabolic rate which leads to a reduction in body temperature and not the other way around.” Wikipedia 


The cold house…
What a glorious winter day, sparkling snow crystals and clear blue sky, it is heavenly beautiful but…freezing cold out there. I went out for a stroll in the garden and paid a visit to for the season a bit neglected greenhouse and it was very cold in there as well – 6 degrees C. (21 F) ‘indoors’. I wonder if any plants will survive this winter.
 I think I’m going to make a nice cup of chocolate and take a look in one of my gorgeous seed brochures.

Now, would you like to see this post in colour?

Wikipedia says this about the Blackberries:

The blackberry is an edible berry in the Rubus genus and the Rosaceae family. The fruit are botanically termed an aggregate fruit and they are produced on plants that typically have biennial canes and perennial roots. Blackberries and raspberries are also called caneberries or brambles. It is a widespread and well known group of several hundred species, many of which are closely related apomictic microspecies native throughout the temperate Northern hemisphere and South America. Wikipedia   


Björnbär (Rubus subg. Rubus) är ett samlingsnamn på flera arter inom familjen Rosaceae, släktet Rubus. Den vanligaste är sötbjörnbär (Rubus plicatus). Björnbärskomplexet består ett stort antal arter, underarter och former, som hör till de mest svårskilda i vår flora. Odlade sorter är dessutom ofta hybrider av olika arter. De kallas ibland även “svarthallon” och “björnhallon” (se även blåhallon). Tidigare betraktade man björnbär som en enda art, vilken då kallades Rubus fruticosus.


Have a great week my friend! And hey don’t be a stranger communicate do write something.





Scandinavian colours or lush green

Tyras Trädgård i mars

Same, same but different, there are three months between these two pictures. They are in mono-colour but can you see the cool Scandinavian colours in the March picture and can you see the lush green colours of the June picture?

Tyra’s Garden

Vinter i Tyras Trädgård

Det här är växthuset i Tyra’s Trädgård, ritat och byggt av Tyra. Det byggdes huvudsakligen år 2003 av gamla fönster från 1901. Tyra’s ambition var att växhuset skulle smälta in den befintliga miljön. Runt om huset finns en potager. Potager kan man säga är som en ornamental köksträdgård. Här trivs och trängs blommor, örter och grönsaker. Frukt och bär får också vara med.
