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

Tips 'n' ideas - My "antidepressant" drug

Today I really need an antidepressant drug.
The weather is appalling, I had a bad day at work and I think I’m coming down with a cold.
I need something to cheer me up!
I found these “happy pills”

Tyra's Garden with artichokes from Potager du Roi.

The potager in July. Summertime how lovely!


A simple yet beautiful Dahlia mignon "Firebird"

Now I feel a little bit better, tonight I think I'll spend the evening in Tuscany. The DVD Under the Tuscan Sun will be perfect. Maybe a glass of Chianti and something nice to go with it.

Your summer garden is lovely and calming. I see why it makes you feel better. And "Under the Tuscan Sun" is a fun movie to settle in with. Enjoy!
