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.

The Botanical Garden of Uppsala

On our way to our ‘summerhouse’ we decided to stop at The Botanical Garden in Uppsala . Uppsala is halfway and perfect for a quick stop. Do some shopping, have lunch or do something more interesting like this time a visit to a botanical garden. Miss M and I chose to have coffee first at a very nice Café called ‘Fågelsången’. The sun was shining from a crystal clear September sky so we were able to sit outside and enjoy our coffee and cake, watching all the people passing by. Next stop was the Botanical Garden in Uppsala. We were very glad to find out that there was an exhibition 'Harvest at Botan' in the Orangery of Linneanum.


In 1807, in memory of the 100th. anniversary of Linnaeus' birth the Linneanum was ready for inauguration. .

The exhibition was fantastic all those wonderful veggies! A lot of them I've never even heard of. Tomatoes in all colours and shapes. This particular 'Carson' looks great, nice colours and healthy, I have to get some seeds next year and try it out.
Fantastiskt trevlig dag blev det i Uppsala med både konditoribesök och besök i den fina bötaniska trädgården. Nu är vi på landet och skördar lite äpplen och plommon. Plommonen var inte många men det kompenserades av att de blev extra stora och vackra i år.

Ha det bra och njut av ljuva september! Skriv en rad/ TYRA

Always a good idea to have a coffee first. ;-)

Lovely little collage you made! The orangery is a beautiful building.

That red cabbage looks great, I hope it tastes great too. :-)

I love visiting botanical gardens, last year I visited one in Italy.
