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.

T.G.I Friday - TULIPS

This post, "T.G.I Friday"was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden http://waxholm.blogspot.com/




T.G.I Friday



The weekend begins, you buy some really nice food and drink for dinner, add some great music and fresh flowers on the table...it's Friday, the best day of the week.


...
Tulips are the favourites right now, they are a messenger of spring and gives us so much joy. When you buy them they are so fresh that the stems make this lovely squeaking noise and they stay fresh the whole week especially if you store them cold during the night. Another thing I like about the tulips are that I think they are getting old very gracefully, the flowers opens the shape alters totally, the colour gets softer, however still beautiful. One day the leaves start to fall and then you know....it's Friday again!

Tyra, these are beautiful. I never buy tulips as cut flowers because I think the heads will flop and they will not last long - I think I should give them another try. I have one tulip in the garden out, can you believe it, it is really early. It is a red/orange small early flowering type.

Best wishes Sylvia (England)

Mildred said...

I absolutely love tulips also. Hope you have a great weekend too.

flowrgirl1 said...

I planted some new tulips last fall. I look forward to seeing them bloom!!! I plan to get some more this year too. Love em!

Mimi said...

Du skrev så poetiskt om tulpaner, så jag nästan fick lust att gå ut och inhandla en bukett, men jag har den här veckan köpt en gul ranunkel och en blå iris som fått sällskap av min sista vita amaryllisblomma, bordet är vackert redan! Ha en skön weekend!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Sounds like you have a lovely weekend ahead of you. We are looking for a serious snowstorm here beginning tonight. Maybe picking up some tulips would help lift my spirits as I dig out from under the snow;)

Hi Sylvia of course tulips in the garden is the best, especially the early ones.

Take care Tyra

Ruben said...

Tjusigt foto, i eldiga spanska färger! Nu får du ta och bjuda upp maken till en flamenco i helgen. Men obs: det ska vara en ROS i håret!! Aja baja om du bryter en tulpan i yran. Trevlig helg! /Ruben

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Hi Mildred and flowrgirl1 I'm so glad to hear that also you love the tulips.

Hi Marnie poor thing, snowstorm! Then you have to make it extra warm and cozy indoors.

Tyra

Vero said...

Jag var också bara tvungen att köpa tulpaner i veckan, trots min strikta slutet av månaden budget. Jättefina är dom, lite röd/ceris med svart längst in när de öppnar sig. Bellissime!

Smaklig spis ikväll med ceviche och roquamole!

Kraaaaaaaaam

joey said...

I'm with you, Tyra ... love Fridays AND tulips! Wishing you a wonderful weekend :) (We're in for a snowy one here!)

Karin A said...

Det är så underbart med tulpaner! Fina bilder och vilken skön start på helgen. :) Köpte nya numret av Allers trädgård häromdagen. Jag ser verkligen fram emot att se bilderna från ditt växthus nästa gång...

Trevlig helg!
Kram Karin

Veronica min älskade dotter, du vet då allt som händer...djungeltelegrafen fungerar :-)

Visst låter det gott!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Hi Joey, does sound good at all. You have to stay indoors and bake something really nice then!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Hej Karin vi får väl se, jag vet inte om reportaget i Allers kommer nästa vecka, men spännande är det eftersom jag står för alla bilderna.

mvh Tyra

Gunilla said...

Tuusen tack för din goa kommentar. Allt ordnar sig förhoppningsvis snat.

Tulpaner är ju verkligen en fantastisk blomma och den finns ju i alla former och färger. Jättesnygga

Ha en fortsatt bra Fredagskväll och en fin helg

Jan said...

Last week the stores had out pots of red tulips for Valentine's Day, and they looked so pretty and cheerful. I love tulips, and your posting reminds me how nice it is to have fresh flowers for the weekend.

Gunilla said...

Menar du Allers Trädgård så kommer reportaget den 19 mars.
Jag är prenumerant så jag missar det inte.
/Växthus för själ och gröda.
Följ med till Vaxholm och ett sanslöst vackert växthus där livslust och växtkraft blommar ut./

Taget från senaste nummret.

Det skall bli så roligt att läsa om dig och din trädgård.

I havent bought any tulips yet this year - bought some daffodils last week which lasted just under a week. What do you mean store them in the cold at night?

Frances said...

Hi Tyra, what a wonderful way to get through the week. I love the petals falling means it's friday again. What fabulous and cheering colors you have chosen. Love the reds! I am trying to do more red flowers in the garden outside too this year. Pleasing to the eye. :-)
Frances

HelenJ said...

När jag såg att det skulle handla om ett växthus i Vaxholm i nästa numemr av Allers misstänkte jag att det var ditt - och nu ser jag att det var rätt. Vilken tur att jag är prenumerant så jag inte missar det! =)

Roses and stuff said...

Fredagar är inte fel. Hela helgen framför en och god mat på bordet plus vackra blommor. Man njuter!
Trevlig helg!

Chandramouli S said...

With such gorgeous blooms that look romantic, the weekend definitely looks bright and fun! Have a great weekend, Tyra!

Anna said...

I have never had much joy with tulips as cut flowers Tyra - they always flop. Perhaps I will try again. Your bunch is so cheerful ! Have a good weekend.

flowergardengirl said...

Great advice. We all need a good restful weekend and I hope you have one too. I bet you do work very hard. Your tulips are beautiful and they make the table more romantic.

Kathleen said...

What a nice way to end the week Tyra. I never think about that although I buy loads and loads of tulips every spring (before they're blooming in my garden). I love the color red so your arrangement is fabulous to me. Enjoy the weekend and add some candles to the table, then it's perfect!

VP said...

I'm smiling because my tulips have just started to poke their noses above the soil this week - yay spring's really on it's way!

Have a great weekend!

tina said...

Gee there is like no more room to write anything:) I can't wait to see tulips in my garden (I guess I could write after all:)

inadvertent farmer said...

tulips are my absolute favorite...love their simple elegance and like you adore their squeaky stems. Thanks for sharing yours with us, Kim

Anja said...

Hej Tyra!
Även om jag själv numera kan 'fira fredag' vilken veckodag jag vill ;))- så blir det av gammal vana just den rätta fredagen i alla fall. Och jag gör som du, lite go' mat, fräscha tulpaner och gott, ekologiskt vin (och just nu Let's dance!;))!)

mvh, Anja

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Gunilla, Helen, Katarina och Anja tack för fina kommentarer.

Gunilla tack för info om Allers det är ju lustigt att man får informationen från er bloggare och inte Allers.

Ha en riktigt fin helg mina vänner!

sweet bay said...

Beautiful post Tyra. The tulips look so lovely in that light..

Kanak Hagjer said...

Gorgeous blooms and photos! Wish you a great weekend too!

Veronika from said...

Hallå Tyra,hoppas allt är bra!Vilka vackra bilder! Jag älskar "papegoj" - tulpaner, sådana där lätt fransade, melerade saker..Det finns massor av dem i Holland - men en gång i tiden, när jag arbetade som blomsterflicka på olika torgmarknader i Göteborg, fick jag dem alltid gratis när arbetsdagen var slut...Det var lycka minsann!
Veronika

haspet said...

Åååh vilken vacker bild och vilken härlig text. Man kan verkligen ana känslan av dom krispiga tulpanerna. Hoppas du får en fin avslutning på kvällen och helgen. // Peter

Randy Emmitt said...

Tyra,

Thanks for visiting my blog! Just love seeing tulips, yours are stunning. Just wish that we could grow them better here as voles/moles or other critters eat them after the first year if they make it that far

jodi (bloomingwriter) said...

Tulips are just such darling flowers, aren't they? I love them as cut flowers; gave my mother some last week and she's still enjoying them.

Sunita said...

Thats really interesting, about it being able to open closed doors. I wonder how it earned that reputation.
