Four Photos from Fyn

on

Fyn is the area of Denmark where my husband comes from. It’s a lovely area, a small island, with rich history and scenery that inspired Hans Christian Andersen to write. Here are four photos that I took recently while we were clearing out my mother-in-law’s house, who recently passed away.

If wishes were houses, this house would be mine. It was for sale about 10-years ago, and I think I’ve missed my opportunity to own it. I’ve admired it for decades. It’s set on a small knoll with a forest behind it and a lake with a wildlife reserve at the front. To the left is a small road, and on the other side of the road is a harbour filled with sail boats. This photo is for my friend, Joanna: This is where I’d live if I could.

This was my husband’s grandmother’s farm house, which is a short bike ride from my mother-in-law’s house. When his family owned it, it was an apple farm.

Fields of daffodils in bloom near my mother-in-law’s house.

And another field a short distance from the one above. There are fields all around Vester Aaby with daffodils right now.

I hope that you enjoyed this brief glimpse into a small corner of Denmark.

      Thank you, Mandy.

  4. The houses are dream-like. Fairy tale Denmark, Just the sort of houses I love, and the daffodil fields too. How could anyone not love Denmark. I would gladly trade a big city for a half timbered, thatched roof house with an apple farm/daffodil field. To me, this is heaven! Thanks so much for sharing these photos. You don’t know how much my heart fills with joy when I see photos like this.

      Yes, it is a very picturesque country, and I’m glad that these little photos brought you some joy.

    Go back and offer them more than what they paid for! I will chip in. We need that house and those fields of daffodils are from a dream of mine. I would love to grow them, though you were there at exactly the right day for that shot. Lovely photos are there more?.. So greedy i am.. c

      Really pretty, eh? I’ve loved that house for decades, from the first moment that I saw it. Unfortunately, you and I can’t buy it; you have to hold Danish citizenship to buy property in Denmark. It’s a very small country, and the government doesn’t want ‘outsiders’ buying up property and turning it into summer houses, leaving nowhere for Danes to live. It also keeps the property prices from soaring out of control, like what’s happened in the UK in seaside locations.

    Beautiful beautiful setting, I spent a lot of time last week for some reason looking at holiday homes in Denmark (and muttering to myself, remember the midges Joanna, remember them) thank you for the photos, much love, Joanna

      And those awful little black crawly bugs called Thunder Bugs that appear when the grain is harvested!

    Lovely daffodils! I’m hooked by anything that gives me a field of yellow.

    1. Misky says:

      Ah. Somewhere I have a photo of rapeseed fields that are just a stone’s throw from my house. I’ll have to find it for you.

  10. Fyn looks most picturesque, what a beautiful little slice of heaven
