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

Always look at the bright side of life!

You have to really take notice of all the beautiful thing that's surrounds us, pleasure and treasure it, especially in these harsh economic times. It's easy to get depressed but I say like The Monty Pythons once said
- Always look at the bright side of life!My greenhouse in October.The last of the year... Sweet Pea Lathyrus odoratus
and the last blackberries


Don' forget that you can pick the Rose hips, they are free. It's a power food, particularly high in Vitamin C, with about 1700–2000 mg per 100 g in the dried product.
Forsythia
My potager - There are a few veggies left, I usually leave some for the wild animals to feast on during the winter.

Do have a nice day...despite :-)

Great post, Tyra, and just the reminder we all need in these trying times. With your optimistic attitude, you have it all;)

Tyra, lovely post. Your Forsythia has lovely autumn colour, I haven't seen one that good. I have a Forsythia that I inherited which gets a lovely dark burgundy autumn leaves.

One way to be optimistic, at the moment, is to plant spring bulbs!

Best wishes Sylvia (England)

Hi Tyra, there is a magical quality to your garden, it is sublime! Your attitude is what we all need to concentrate on right now, there is so much beauty in our surroundings, we must draw from that to refresh our souls. And Sylvia's excellent suggestion of planting spring bulbs plays that song as well.

Vackra bilder från din trädgård Tyra!
Håller med om att "...the bright side of life" är mycket roligare än the dark one!(Kommer du ihåg melodin. Den är go' att vissla!)

mvh, Anja

Det är ett väldigt bra citat! Och skålen med björnbär ser så frestande ut!

Hi Tyra,
You are surrounded by beauty and have the gift to take photos and share it with me.
I wanted to tell you I work with a lady from Malmo, and she visits home every year.
