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. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

'Whiter Shade of Pale' - Claus Dalby's Spring Garden

This post, "Whiter Shade of Pale" was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden http://waxholm.blogspot.com/

I usually store my ABC Wednesdays in the Greenhouse but not so this week. I thought as it is not about my garden, potager nor the greenhouse I'll rather have it here.



R is for Risskov







These pictures are from Risskov near Århus, Denmark
...

Meet Claus Dalby’s fantastic garden, that I call a ’Whiter shade of pale’ garden. This man can really paint with his plants, though his spring garden is almost monochrome it is truely amazing, so very beautiful. Claus found all these wonderful plants and composed them into a crème coloured symphony for his spring garden.

Det var et nydelig sted du hadde funnet. Danmark på sitt beste. Jeg har vært i Århus mange ganger, både på jobb og ferie. Reiser gjerne til Århus igjen.

Teksten til Procul Haru r nok for de avanserte, men de fikk en vri på Bach som få andre har klart.

It is a beautiful collection of images for r. A lovely virtual walk.

Så stiligt! Lite annorlunda mot en annans trädgård, där man trycker när plantor där det finns plats... oberoende av färg och form... Ha en skön långhelg!

Anja said...

Så underbara trädgård Tyra! Den måste jag få se i verkligheten!
Så underbara bilder du har tagit!/Anja

Marie Reed said...

What a glorious Spring paradise!

spacedlaw said...

Lovely place!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

André och Anja tack snälla för fina kommentarer, visst är det en sagolig trädgård. Jag har inte tagit dessa bilderna tyvärr jag har bara satt ihop kollaget. Tänkt om man hade en sådan trädgård, jag undrar hur många anställda man måste ha...


Thank you all for your nice comment, I cannot actually take credit for the pictures unfortunately, they are from Klematis, I have just done the cillage.

Fabulous, Tyra! Spring, spring, spring!

Zoë said...

Just beautiful, so serene and restful.

Michelle said...

That is a fantastic garden, wish I could visit myself. I could never limit myself to such a limited color palette - it would be so tempting to add a splash or orange!

Leslie: said...

The garden is stunning, yet so peaceful looking! Beautiful surroundings. Thanks for sharing. :D

Wow, Claus trädgård har jag beundrat både på tv och i tidningar. har du varit där? Ser fantastiskt ut!

Trevlig helg!

Frances said...

Hi Tyra, I always loved that song even though the lyrics are slightly nonsensical. It seems after seeing them written down that they were dancing and had been drinking too much? HA Anyway, Claud's garden is a masterpiece! The tulips with the variegated iris? is just look wonderful. A true artist with the planting spade.

OF SPRING AND SUMMER said...

Oj, vilken fin trädgård. Har aldrig hört talas om den. Alltid roligt att hitta nya fina trädgårdar. Får åka dit någon gång när jag är hemma i Sverige. Kram Ingrid

Kanak Hagjer said...

So very beautiful! I just kept looking!!! Even a whiter shade of pale can be awesome.

Rose said...

What a beautiful place to visit! The paler shades certainly have a dramatic and serene effect. I would have a difficult time keeping from adding a few bright colors to my own garden, though. I never understood those lyrics either, though I'll be humming that song all afternoon:)

Kathleen said...

oh my goodness ~ what a masterpiece. I never think of creating/planting in shades of the same color but look how spectacular it turned out. I love it! Thanks for sharing it with us too. It's one of those gardens that deserves to be seen & appreciated by many people. Hope you're having fun planting??

Hanneles paradis said...

Det ser ju helt underbart ut,
ha en trevlig helg, kram.

Karyn said...

Stunning! a real work of art.

tapirgal said...

You have a lot of cool pictures here, very nice to look at. I never understood that song, either. It sounds like he's describing an event, and we weren't there, so . . . oh, well!

Grace and Bradley said...

Thank you for sharing this fantastic garden. We are happy to have flower come out well in our garden. It is so fascinating to see how he can combine the different color of the flower into a beautiful painting.

Marie said...

Did you make the collage? These flowers (and the photos) are wonderful. They make me miss my garden still more.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Risskov is such a pretty place, one I would LOVE to see in person!

Dragonstar said...

What a beautiful place that is! And I don't understand "A whiter shade of pale" either, but the sound... Wonderful!

Mouse said...

Such a beautiful house and garden.
A person could feel very calm and contented in such a lovely place
