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.

Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day - Potager

Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day

At last spring is here and we can all go out in the garden and enjoy all the lovely blooms. Suddenly our brownish grey 'winter gardens' turns to green and the flowers adds spashes of colour. Everything happens so fast now and you can almost see the grass grow. Now is the time to tidy up the Potager and prepare the beds for the coming growing season. I made a new 'fence' of some sticks and small branches for my peas to climb on, I love to work with the willow. Everything looks rather neat and tidy now and I'm ready to plant :-)....my poor body is aching though. Ahww



~ APRIL ~

Some lovely April blooms there Tyra and isn't it an exciting time of the year in the vegetable garden too ?
So much preparation, so much anticipation :)

Chandramouli S said...

Looks like Mother Nature's gone crazy with her brushes and palettes in your garden! Great collages, Tyra!

Frances said...

Hi Tyra, I love the fences and teepees you have made with the twigs. You have inspired me to get out there and put something together for the sweet peas and other climbers that is attractive as well as functional. Thanks for that! :-) Your blooms and paths all look wonderful, so full of the promise of spring. Happy bloom day!
Frances

tina said...

No moon following here but your blooms are lovely to follow!

Ruben said...

Tyra, du är omöjlig ;-) Sådana jättefina collage!!! Och dina 'pinnar' ser väldigt prydliga ut där de står och väntar på blomster. /Ruben

Gardenlife said...

Ja... det är en arbetsintensiv tid just nu men.... så skön!

Blossom said...

I love those collages. You have such lovely blooms blooming in your garden. Beautiful.

Gail said...

Hello Tyra! Everything looks lovely and the collage is perfect way to show us how hard you and your garden have been at work! Have a good rest of the day! gail

garden girl said...

So pretty Tyra! Those spring blooms are a welcome sight after a long, cold, snowy winter!

Happy Bloom Day!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Hi Tyra, love your photos. I may follow your example and try some sticks to grow my peas on.

patientgardener said...

I like your pea sticks - very smart. I'm interested in planting with the moon but I suspect, from what I have read, that working full time would be slightly problematic.

Daphne said...

You have some nice spring blooms. My favorite photos is the one of your pea fence. It is so pretty.

Outside In said...

Hi Tyra,

Beautiful Collage and flowers!

sweet bay said...

Beautiful collages Tyra. I love the teepee and fence and the stone walkway. I commiserate with your physical pain but it's a good kind of pain right? lol At least it's for a good cause!

Michelle said...

Tyra, your collages are wonderful! I really like your pea supports, far more pretty than what I rigged up for my peas.

perennialgardener said...

Beautiful collages today Tyra! I love the little orange flowers in the bottom right corner of your spring blooms. What is the name of that beauty? Happy Bloom Day! :)

Karen said...

Is that little orange guy at the bottom a lewisia? I always think to get one but forget when I'm at the nursery. Nice blooms! And I'd love to see more of that willow fence. I have some shoots but probably not enough to build anything, but I love willow structures. Happy Bloom Day!

Glädjekällan said...

Misstänker att det är ditt ärtstöd som jag tycker är så fint på fotot.
Har du redan börjat så grönsaker?
Från att ha varit helt ointresserad av grönsaker i 20 år har jag i år köpt riktigt många olika sorters fröer.
Ha det gott

Ja, man hör riktigt hur det knakar i marken nu. Här i nv Skåne blir det nog rabarberpaj till helgen! :o)
Ha en härlig vecka,
Lydia

andré said...

Vilka sköna vårcollage du har gjort..! Det är verkligen mycket som händer nu... tur att det snart är helg igen.

Pat - Arkansas said...

I do like your pea trellis! Your photo collages are beautiful.

Anja said...

Härlig vårkollage av vårblomster!
Kroppen - den skall vi inte tala om...;))!
"Moon planting" - typ biodynamiskt?
(Måste erkänna att jag har inte läst dina "bilagor" om vad du syftar med denna odling)

mvh, Anja

Weeping Sore said...

I love the pictures and can't wait to see how your peas like climbing up the willow sticks. Your blog is always so beautiful, and I particularly love the idea of following the moon.

Lilla Blanka said...

Thank you all for your great comments!

Karen the flower in the corner is a Tulipa Greigii. You find more of those little darlings under tulips.
It is sweet isn't it.

Take care my friends and happy gardening!/ Tyra

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Lisa at Greenbow said...

I like the collage as it tells the story of the beginning of spring work in the garden. Happy GBBD.

joey said...

I see you have been blessed, dear Tyra. Spring has found you (and me too :)

Hanneles paradis said...

Underbara bilder, börjar klia i fingrana (på mitt berg frågar jag inte, hur växterna vill ha det. Det blir tufft liv där jag vill ha dem :)
Trevlig helg.

haspet said...

Nya underbara collage. Härligt att se vad som händer hos dig. Nu är det verkligen explosioner i rabatterna med allt som kommer upp. Och visst känns det i kroppen att säsongen är igång på allvar, men det är ju bara härligt när man vet vad smärtorna beror på. Hoppas du får en fortsatt solig och skön helg. // Peter

Lindab said...

It's all happening at once! The willow obelisk looks lovely - I much prefer them to metal ones. Know what you mean about aching body, with all those muscles unused through the winter protesting at the sudden activity.

Marie said...

Vakker collage :)

Kathleen said...

I love when everything goes from brown to green ~ still waiting for that to happen here but at least there are a few blooms about to carry us over, right? Pretty spring blooms Tyra and your garden is looking ready to go.

Anja said...

Tack Tyra för din underbara kommentar hos mig.
Min mamma dog -98 och jag gör som du - pratar med henne när jag behöver goda råd.Det kommer jag att göra även med Skruttan.

Kram, Anja

Kathryn/plantwhateverbringsyoujoy.com said...

Hi, Tyra! I love that fence. Wish I could have watched you make it. Any chance of a post with detailed photos?? Or too late? :) I know what you mean by All At Once. I can barely believe what is blossoming at the moment after some very hot weather this week. Our plants really do burst in the sun! Happy Gardening!

Kanak Hagjer said...

Tyra, you must be blooming too! Beautiful collage and the blooms are just lovely!
