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.

A GARDENERS WRAP


A Gardeners Gift Wrap

To wrap a present is so fun, I really do enjoy it and this time I wanted to do something different, I went for a stroll in the garden and ended up with this. I just adores the seed capsules of the Papaver, I think they are most fascinating, each one is a small work of art. They are so beautiful therefore I started out with the Papaver then...

...

POP ART

...added a fig (picked from the fridge), some lovely green Ivy, two Cynara cardunculus and then the beautiful blueish green fragant sage. I was rather satisfied with the result if I may say, you could certainly see that it was from the a gardener :-)


Att slå in paket är ju så jätteroligt tycker jag, här gick jag en runda i trädgården och plockade lite grejer, frökapslar ifrån vallmo, härligt grön murgröna, doftande salvia också ett par kardonknoppar och till sist ett fikon ifrån kylskåpet...sedan var det bara att fästa ihop dem och vips, färdigt. Ett paket som det syns lång väg att det kommer från en trädgårds toka.

Happy birthday to Lena my dear sister in law!



Have a great week all of you!

What is up in the greenhouse?

Hi Tyra, that does show the talents of an artist AND a gardener! I love the poppy seed heads too and save them after I have saved the seeds to scatter in the garden. A bowl of the stems with head attached are sitting on my kitchen bar waiting to be crafted into something for our Thanksgiving fiesta when my whole family comes to my house. Your poppy flowers looks like a very pretty one too, is it a dark purple color?

Anja said...

.....och Tyra! Jag skulle bli vaaansinnigt sårad om du inte antog utmaningen i min blogg ;)))!!!
Nåja. Jag överlever om och ifall du tycker att det är integritetsintrång - typ;))! Men jag säger, som jag sa till Camellia, att ibland får man bjuda lite på sig! Vi bloggare är ju så OOOOtroooligt nyfikna på dig Tyra!

mvh, Anja

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Anja det menar du inte, vaaansinnigt sårad? Nejdå. Genom mina bloggar vet du ju nästan allt om mej...kanske inte skonummret:-)
Som jag sa på 'Anjas Hill' när jag läste om dej så skulle jag kopiera dina subjektiva sanningar rakt av :-) Stor kram Tyra..... 37 i skor

heirloomgardener said...

That is gorgeous and inspiring.

Kathryn/plantwhateverbringsyoujoy.com said...

I am so glad you did this post,Tyra! I have been eyeing the rose hips up in the rose arbor thinking, "You must get up there on a ladder and pick those! They are so full of vitamin C." In my early youth I made tea from them as they are supposed to be so good for a cold. But your recipe sounds so delightful! I must try! Thank you!

Mouse said...

Dear Tyra, The gift is beautiful and must surely be a pleasure to receive.

VP said...

Oh how pretty. The wrapping's a gift in itself :)

Merja said...

Jätte fint!! Tack för tipset!
Men..Bara... och vips....det lät för enkelt..;)

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

tina said...

How talented you are! What a lovely gift wrapped package. The poppy seedhead is a work of art.

I also love the pictures from the sea on your heather post. Heather does not grow well for me here in Tennessee and I love it over there. It for some reason reminds me of Wuthering Heights. A good thing I guess.

inadvertent farmer said...

What a lovely and thoughtful way to wrap a gift! Very creative.

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Hi Tina, yes I do agree the seedheads are like a true work of art.

Thank you dear Kim.

Amy said...

Very, very beautiful. What a wonderful way to wrap a special gift.
