Walk With Dog

When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are. Are the dog actually thinking are is it just learned things upon it´s basic instincs? I know that a dog can figure things out. It can certainly learn lots of things and it can learn to understand great parts of our language too. A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. A dog is always there for you and it is happy to see you when you come back. It is hard to find a greater devotion from any other creature. It is loyal, faithful and gives so much love. Yes it want´s your attention, but it also gives you...

Fantastic Plants – The Great Mullein

Today I will tell you about an extraordinary plant. It is called Great or common Mullein (Verbascum Thapsus). In danish “Filtbladet Kongelys“. Two years ago I found a much smaller plant than the one I show you below. I digged it up and planted it near my fireplace in the east end of the garden. After a few month the plant had spread to the whole garden and one of them had begun to grow quite fast and heavy beside the greenhouse. Great Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a two-year plant, that only flourishes the second year. After that it dies. It grows wild in all Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia. Great Mullein is used as a ornamental plant...

Close To Plants 2

Hi there lovely one. Good to have you back for the Plantstories again… In “Close To Plants 1” I told you about the raspberries, the currants and the gooseberries. This time I will tell you about all the rest from my blueberries to my beloved pear tree. If a kitchen has only a few herbs in its possession, basil will likely be one of them. Its fragrant essence combines well with rosemary and thyme in meat dishes, fish, vegetables, cheese, soup and eggs, and is one of the main ingredients in pesto, along with pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I have my basil inside my Greenhouse. Basil is considered one of the healthiest herbs. It’s best when fresh, exuding a sweet, earthy aroma that...

Close To Plants 1

Plants is just amazing organisms. Quiet still standing (most of them) creatures that are so important for our lives. We call it The Blue Planet, but we should rather call it The Green Planet. Maybe then we would respect them a little more and know that without them……..there would be nothing. Below a little poem about the process from the plants that we are so depending on and since I am a schoolteacher in Biology, well then it is inevitably ;O) When it comes to food you can just feel how good plants are for you. One of my favorite doings is to go around in my garden and talk to my plants…….Ok ok well not talking, something like feeling...

Ordinary And Special Day 6-6-19

Breathe in breathe out. Breathing is your anchor… Breathing and being that is what you fundamentally have. That is the true healthy you. Feelings and thoughts comes and goes. They do not define you. Your being and breathing is your life anchor. The right breathing means everything for your well being. Breathe all the way down in your stomac, lower your shoulders, relax, feel the air giving your power. This time a year I try to swim each day. Swimming and diving can really trains you in relaxation. Especially in this element it is really important that you relax. Lots of people can´t relax in water, and that makes them hyperventilate and heavy in the water. Slowly try to learn...
