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


Papaver in Tyra´s Garden

Papaver "in floribus", it is June in Tyra´s Garden. Poppies everywhere!
I just love this flower. Delicate yet strong and the colour, so bright....oh, wonderful. The seed capsules of the Papaver are also extremely beautiful.

Have a very nice day!

Vero, Ja visst kommer jag ihåg Poppy day, kallas också Rememberance day.
Poppy day is a day to commemorate the sacrifice of veterans and civilians in World War I, World War II, and other wars.

quu, yes I do grow all colours but red is definitly the number one.

Hi Tyra,

I came over to thank you for your nice comment on my blog and I'm delighted from your pictures here and that you write in English too! Especially your fantastic and beautiful white Greenhouse is a feast for my eyes! I was always wishing for a Greenhouse like that a bit Victorian looking! I love yours! That picture of the poppies blooming in front of the Greenhouse is so very pretty! I'll be back! Best wishes! Carol x

Hej Tyra!
Underbara ilder på en av mina älsklingsblommor Vallmon. Fantastiskt när man kan gå så nära.
Tack för kommentaren på min blogg.
Kram Eva Agnes

Jag hittade just din blogg och kan inte låta bli att säga att jag beundrar dina bilder så mycket. Vilken fantastisk trädgård och så fint du fångar den på bild. Och växthuset! Jag skulle göra vad som helst (nästan) för ett sådant vackert växthus.

I love poppies! They look so beautiful in your garden. I had planted few in a row in my garden three years back and now the poppies keep popping up in spring without any decent effort on my part.

What a lovely sight in that last pic! Poppies are lovely. Red and orange ones are like fire in the sun.

Jag har alltid tyckt att vallmon ar en riktigt Brittisk blomma - haller du med eller ar jag helt ute och cyklar i min fantasi? Kanske lite konstigt med tanke pa engelsmannens protester mot raps och vallmo for dessa forstor de grona kullarna! Det ar sant! Stor artikel i The Guardian for nagra veckor sedan... Stolligheter!

Jag langtar tillbaka till den harliga soffan i vaxthuset efter luncherna har..

Love that combination of ox-eye daisies and poppies, eventhough orange is NOT my colour. ;-)

Daisies are great, I love them to bits. Even one of my cats is called Daisy! :-D
