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.

ANALYZE THIS! and it's Blooming Friday!

This post, 'Analyze this! and it's blooming friday, was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden
It's Blooming Friday!

Analyse this!


Yesterday we all had a challenge given to us by Shirl

Which three plants whould you bring ....?

It certainly was a challenge and great fun.

Our dear friend Frances (Faire Garden) wrote in a comment like this -’Hi Tyra, how fun this is! Your choices reflect a love of beauty and your sensual nature. Hmm, can we do some psycho analysis from people's choices? No, better not go there. LOL Someone else chose the morning glories, that is such a good one for that blue color and generous number of blooms, I had to have a rose also, thanks for telling us about that one. It may have to come live in my REAL garden! Dahlias, so grand, and like Jodi says, we wouldn't have to bother with digging them. A dream come true. Frances’

Well could 'we' analyse this?

It is thrilling thought, an interesting idea isn’t it?....... Or perhaps not.

I have borrowed some pictures from you* and made a small collage over what the garden bloggers would like to bring along to the Desert Island. Unfortunately I couldn’t steal Yolanda’s hunk, sorry I ment garbage man, James something, was it Bond? But we all remember him. :-)

One pic is wrong, do you know which one?
One of the pictures is wrong, it pictures a plants that the owner of the photo would not bring along to the desert island. Do you know which one? And to whom it belongs?
Is it Gail's Clay and Limestone picture?
or Tina's In the Garden,
See the rest of the participants here at Shirl's Garden Watch.

Have a great day my friend, it's blooming friday!
More Blooming Friday's here at Katarinas Roses and stuff. White delights

*participants, just for the collage, I hope you don't mind, if so please let me know.

My Mother's Garden said...

I know who...but the mystery is more intriguing, so I wont tell. It's like a scavenger hunt!

This was a delightfully fun challenge!

So much fun and a pretty collage!

Gail said...


If we were on skype you could see me jumping up and down and hear me saying "Call on me! Call on me! I know the answer!" It has been a fun day and you've extended it beautifully! Have a good weekend. gail

Daphne Gould said...

It's the blue poppy, but dang it I looked at too many and now can't remember how had the blue poppy, though it really made me want one in my garden.

Unknown said...

Heh. I know the answer too, but I'm not saying. :-)

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Hi Muse, do visit the blogs, they come highly recommended.

Well done Karrita, don't tell yet.

Hi Mildred and thank you!

Hahaha..I can see you Gail!

Daphne, well....who had the Poppy, blue Poppy?

Good Girl Jodi!

Thank you girls for your kind comments, I wish you all a happy weekend./ Tyra

Gunilla said...

Jättefint collage , Jag vet inte hur man gör ett. Är inte så van.

Ha en fortsatt bra dag och en trevlig helg

Skulle jag analysera collaget så skulle jag komma fram till en tydlig och enkel slutsats: Sommarlängtan. Symptomen är extra tydliga under januari-februari, och den enda riktiga medicinen är snittblommor. :-)

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Gunilla tack kul att du gillade kollaget, jag älskar att leka med bilderna. Det finns många knep och fina program som hjälper till.

André du har sååå rätt, mer blommor åt folket!

Ha en trevlig helg/ Tyra

Marie said...

Härligt kollage med vackra blommor. Blåa bergvallmon är min älskling, har en i min trädgård. Trevlig helg.

Bradley Hsi said...

We certainly can not guess which one is wrong, but they are all beautiful plants and beautifully photographed. Thanks for coming by our blog. My husband just put a new blog up, with all his jumbo mumbo of his photo techniques. Could you tell us what are the two flowers. The purple ones are only 5mm in radius.

HA Tyra, thanks for the link love. This may be the first time a comment of mine was featured in a post! double HA. You are a clever girl, and I think I know which photo doesn't belong, for I have it sitting in front of me? :-) The urge to analyze the choices, or more truthfully, WHY the choices was great, but it was so fun to see them all. Thanks again to Shirl for this idea!

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Hejsan Marie och tack. Vet du jag vill så gärnA ha en i min trädgård. Jag har försökt med frö ett år och nu gör jag ett sista försök, sedan går jag och köper en planta!

Ha det gott/ Tyra

Hi Grace and Bradley and a warm welcome to Tyra's Garden, I hope you will enjoy it! Haha and Grace I will most certainly come and visit your husbands jumbo/mumbo blog, it sound like fun!

Hi Frances, is always a first time for everything! I think we all had a very nice time yesterday, great fun!

xoxo Tyra

Katarina said...

Somrigt och blommigt är det hur som helst! Och jag vill inte ta bort en enda. Fast nu gäller det ju inte mig...
Ha en härlig helg!

Vilken härlig vitamininjektion av vackra blommor.. som sagt så behövs det i detta vädret.. brr.. Ha en skön helg.. Monica

Salix said...

That is beautiful, Tyra - and a wonderful idea.
Just like Gunilla, I love the collage, but don't know what tool/software to use. Which one do you use?
I took the challenge at Shirl's because of your blog. Thanks

I'm not sure I'd want anyone to analyze my choices! lol Wonder what that would say??!! Interesting thought tho. You are the queen of collages! This one is beautiful. I don't know which is wrong ~ I'm still making my rounds reading everyones three. I'll have to check back when I'm finished. Have a great weekend Tyra!

Philip Bewley said...

What a beautiful collage. it is fun recognizing these from other posts.
Best regards,

Hi, Tyra! What a clever idea and how handy! I don't know which one does "not belong" but I'm seeing that hibiscus as definitely belonging near a beach! Must be all that time I spent in Mexico and Puerto Rico!

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Katarina och Moa tack för era kommentarer, jag gillar verkligen det här med blommig fredag. En bra positiv start på helgen liksom.

Bra ide Katarina!

kram Tyra

Tyra, I love your collage. It seems that great gardeners are also great photographers. Those pictures would look wonderful on a garden calender.

Always Growing

Hannele på Hisingen said...

Vilket underbart collage, jag väljer luktärter, har inte alltid tålamod med dem. Ha en bra dag, kram.

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Answere to the question.

It is the blue Poppy and then you understand of course it is Jodi's (Bloomingwriter) flower.

xoxo Tyra

Thank you for all the lovely comments!

Ann D. Travers said...

Hi Tyra.
Followed you here from Blotanist. Enjoyed the collage from the desert island string I've been reading this week on the blogs. Too busy to get involved in this one but will keep an eye out for the next challenge. Well-developed blog you have here. Fun reading and great photos. Congratulations!

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Welcome to my 'garden' and thank you Ann! For your warming words.

Brian said...

Awesome pictures!!


TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Thank you Brian and welcome into my garden./ Tyra

Tyra - Although I read this post a few days ago, I didnt have time to leave a comment, so I am back.

What a beautiful collage, I was so thrilled to see that you used one of my images in it, and thanks for the link love.

It was so nice to see our desert island plants all-together like that, including Jodi blue poppies that she is leaving behind.
What a lovely idea you had for a post, lots of fun

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Thank you Karen, I think our island will be terrific!

Annika Christensen said...

Är det en scilla äng på bilden med träden?
Ohhh... jag sitter här och suckar av längtan fast jag vill att det skall vara länge när det väl sätter fart.
Ha det gott
