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

Thursday

13 December LUCIA

My niece Emma in the Church of Vaxholm - Min 'lilla' brordotter Emma som Lucia i Vaxholm kyrka

Lucia brings light to Sweden Read about the history of Saint Lucia from Sicily!

"Natten går tunga fjät, runt gård och stuva. Kring jord, som sol förlät, skuggorna ruva.

Då i vårt mörka hus, stiger med tända ljus, Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia!"

Idag njuter vi av Lucia med sång, gott kaffe med lussekatter, kanske ett Luciatåg med Lucia (Lucior om vi är på dagis), tärnor , stjärngossar och kanske ett par nissar. Va härligt.

Ha en fin dag, skriv en rad 'vettja'

TYRA

Låter mycket trevligt, själv väntar jag med lussandet till på söndag, då jag besöker den årliga luciakonserten i Globen som jag för övrigt rekommenderar varmt, idag äter jag bara en lussebulle

God jul!

I bland smyger jag in i kyrkan och tittar på skolans Luciatåg och det är så vackert.... Mysig tradition vi har, behövs i mörkret. Ha en god kväll 8`)

Hope you had a lovely ST Lucia day Tyra. Your niece Emaa looks very pretty wearing the crown of light. Are those real candles?

OT I noticed the copyright badge on your blog and was wondering if you are aware that many of your blog posts are on a site called the GrowSpot? Your blog post are there with your pics, the complete texts and everything. Visit the Transplantable Rose blog from Annie in Austin for more information.

Hi Tyra,

Just go to the GrowSpot website and scroll down until you see some numbers at the bottem of the page. Click on number 1 and then click on Gardening Around the Web. You will find many of your posts there with your pictures too. Good luck!

BTW That woman has stolen my content too but has removed most of it but not all so I've complained again.

I completely understand you're being furious, I was too!

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;

Hello all and thank you for your kind comments.
Yolanda, they (GrowSpot) have taken it away now and that was good, before I got really really angry!
