Interview: Vera from Grown To Cook

Vera Greutink is a Dutch gardening journalist and published author who is a relatively new Instagram aquaintance of mine.

Inspired by: Claus Dalby

Being a very visual person, what first attracted me to his style of gardening was how he put together shapes and colours in his planting, or rather the colours he left out. His planting was so harmonious. In 2004 I had never seen anything like that here in Denmark. Instead it seemed like the gardening world was full of white and red roses, or bright red and yellow tulips.

Inspired By: My Grandfather's Garden

The are many ways to create a garden, and many ways to be a gardener. I have grown up with several beautiful gardens in my life.

There I spent every summer holiday ...

Inspired By: Jonna Jinton

She creates the most incredible photos, films, art and songs (or Kulning as it is traditionally called). I have been following Jonna on Instagram for a few years now, and it always lifts my spirit when I see one of her magical landscapes or moods show up in my feed.

Inspired by: Kristian Humaidan

Kristian "UFO" Humaidan is a gifted Danish singer, producer and wordsmith. Over the years, after my English studies at university and now after years of working primarily with english speaking clients, I think and dream in english. I often find myself hesitating and lacking words when speaking Danish. Words and sentences seems to flow more easily in English and I prefer reading English books too. I have always felt that Danish is a clumpsy and unsophisticated language compared to English, but Kristian's intricate yet basic lyrics have made me fall back in love with my language. Many of the tracks on his new album spoke to me and spoke to a pain deep within me that I struggle to come to terms with during these years of my life, some of it old pain and some of it new challenges that come with raising children and staying connected to myself and to my husband in the midst of everyday life.
