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


I'm back!

Fascinated, dead beat and 6 pounds less of me I’m back after a journey to India.
What a country! 1 billion people and it feels like I met at least half of them. This was my first time in India and I hope I will be able to go back, there is so much to discover.

Delhi India

Taj Mahal Agra India

Whenever I go abroad I always look up the botanical gardens, this time was an exception, the nearest I came to a botanical garden was at Taj Mahal, Agra. They had a Tree of India Garden. Not a lot of people there and a shady and cool place to walk through, very nice.

I really enjoy "world music" and India has so much interesting music, fascinating instruments songs and dancers. I had the benefit to go to a traditional music and dance performance in The Amber Palace in Jaipur, I also went to the Cinema in Jaipur and watch a movie in Hindi! In Jaipur I also had the pleasure to attend a Hindu wedding. Most fascinating, all those absolutely gorgeous women in their saris, young as old they were all stunning, I felt very pale!

I still feel pale and weak, trying to recover from whatever I brought with me from India, this is the first day by the computer.... and it's nice to be back!

Wow, vilken häftig resa det måste ha varit! Jag har alltid drömt om att resa dit och hoppas komma iväg någon gång. Jag hoppas också du visar fler bilder och berättar mer.

Du har så rätt - det finns ingen Hötorgshall i Göteborg. Jag har flyttat till Stockholm nämligen. Känns lite tungt att vara trädgårdslös för tillfället men det finns så mycket att se och göra här uppe. Ha det gott! Kram Karin

This sounds like a lovely trip, I have been wanting to go to India for the past few months-and getting to attend a Hindu wedding, too! Eat lots of fresh pineapple to cleanse your stomach, and see a doctor if the symptoms continue. It could be bacterial ( which usually goes away on its own) or parasitic-where you need treatment.

Hi Tyra! It was sure a pleasant surprise to know that you have been to India; I hope your gastronomical misadventure wasn't too bad.
It is heartening that you found India exciting; it is really a very diverse and beautiful country, but I do wish that it will be a bit more organised and more tourist friendly in times to come.
