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.

Recycling an Old Dead Tulip

This very mature tulip has certainly seen it's best day's. Sometimes I like dead flowers especially tulips they really ages gracefully. This morning I took a picture of this very, very old dead flower (I think it's from last year) :-) Recycled tulip - I added some light, color and ops.... Revived!
This is even more colorful version - 'Tulipa colorfullus vulgare'
Have a nice week/ Tyra

Very clever, colourful and lovely, Tyra. A few months til we have tulips in the garden, so I'll enjoy yours.

Åh häftigt!! och så har du målat av den? Så snyggt.... I går började jag måla med akvarellpennor och tänkte faktiskt börja skissa på blommor. Tog ett liknade foto som du av en lila dubbel tulpan på jobbet - blev rätt så fin bild så jag tror jag väljer den. Ha det gott :)

Lotta och Vella tackar! Visst är även vissna blad interessanta och sedan var det här med att jag målat....hm jag har 'målat' med datorn.

Vackert. Halvvissna tulpaner stoppar jag i islyktor; jag låter vattnet i spannen bli till en stor iskub, tulpanerna lyser genom, speciellt, om man har kvar gamla uteslingor. Trevligt i vinterträdgården.
