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.

It's Blooooming Friday! - Blomming Fredag

Hip, hip, Hurrah, Hippeastrum


I cannot possibly think of a better way to start this year than with these magnificent flowers. It’s Bloooming Friday again and I give you a shower or rather a bang-boom of ‘flowering fireworks’.


...

We call it Amaryllis but it is a Hippeastrum...

Hippeastrum is a genus of about 70–75 species and 600+ hybrids and cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean. Some species are grown for their large showy flowers. These plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis, an African genus in the same family. Wikipedia

...

Blommig Fredag - årets första. Jag kan inte tänka mej ett bättre sätt att börja året med än med dessa stora underbara blommor som vi har runt om oss så här års.

Hippeastrum - Amaryllis, här har jag två av de som jag har hemma just nu Amaryllis ' Candy floss' och Amaryllis ' intokasie'.

Your flowers are lovely. This is one of my favorite blooming plants. I planted mine to have blooms in late January, and the buds are about three inches high now. I can hardly wait for them to bloom and brighten up deary winter.

Amaryllis är nog en av de mest ståtliga blommor som finns. Jag har också bidragit med bilder på en av in amaryllis till Bloomin Friday/Blommande fredag.
God fortsättning på 2009 och en önskan om ett gott nytt odlingsår!

Visst är de vackra, amaryllisarna! Så magnifika. Och det är roligt att det finns så många hybrider i olika färger.
God forsättning!

lareine said...

what a beautiful way of starting this "blooming" year!... and those yellow-tipped stamens are beckoning me to take a closer look... it's great to have flowers like this to brighten our winter:)

Glädjekällan said...

Jo amaryllisar är verkligen fina. För några år sedan hade jag riktigt många. De ville inte blomma om så där utan vidare, hade nog inte hand med dem, så nu har de blivit kompost.
God fortsättning på 2009!

Your 'blooming Friday' is 'blooming beautiful', dear Tyra!

Sunita said...

In my home we like to call them 'Convent Lilies' because they're always seen in the gardens planted by the nuns in convents . They always looked beautiful there.... power of prayer, maybe?
Happy New Year, Tyra

Anja said...

Visst är Hippeastrum en underbar blomma både un der julen och även som sommarblomma - det är ju inte ovanligt att den blommar en gång till på sommaren. MEN! Själv är jag just nu trött på julen och njuter av kameliornas snart bristande knoppar!

God fortsättning på möjlighjeternas år! mvh, Anja

Kathleen said...

Oh no, I call them Amaryllis all the time ~ so, if I'm reading your post correctly, that is not right??? I need to get informed about this! I am enjoying some blooms at the moment too ~ different colors than yours tho. I love the coloring on your 'Candy Floss.' It's just gorgeous.

Mitt Måleri said...

hej
tack för den snälla komentaren om mina skåp....blir så glad. har bara kikat runt lite grann hos dig men herregud så fina bilder och arrangemang du gör...ska fortsätta att kika
kramar pia

Kylee said...

I've got Amaryllis blooming, too! ('White Peacock' at the moment)

Is 'Candy Floss' more of a coral than true pink? It kind of looks like it in your photo. If so, I'll have to buy that one next year.
