Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Hip, hip, hurra! Linnaeus

Vår store botaniker Carl von Linné skulle fyllt 300 år i dag.

Happy Birthday to Linnaeus!

Just 1,54 cm tall but still huge. One of the worlds greatest scientist. Born in 1707 in Råshult as son of a priest. He grew up in Stenbrohult, moved to Uppsala where he married Sara and got a lot of children. 5 of them reached adulthood. Carl von Linné was born Carolus Linnaeus and was raised to nobility in 1757.

Haha 300 år det är inte illa, tänk vad han hade fått uppleva under sin 300-åriga livstid.

Mums, vad det skulle sitta fint med solvarma hallon nu.

Have a beautiful day Tyra!
