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.

My 'Watercolour Rose' - in floribus

This post, 'Watercolour Rose' was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden
Watercolours in the Greenhouse
Busy times now here in Waxholm now, this is a typical Summertown and everything happens during the summer. I’m working too much and havn’t got time for anything, that is why I havn’t been able to blog as much as I use to and want to. The weather is fantastic so I can get up real early to work in the garden and enjoy the breathtaking mornings. that is a good thing. The evenings are stunning too but then I'm so dead tired after a long day and the only thing I want is my bed :-)

Here in this post I just wanted to show you one bush of roses, my beautiful "Watercolour Rose"

Watercolours in the Greenhouse

I have this wonderful Rose bush in my garden, I don’t know the name but I call it my Watercolour Rose. It reminds me of a watercolor palette, it has all the colour from pale creamy yellow, through the apricot hues to soft pink. I wish someone knows it’s real name.

Soft creamy yellow... and pink on the same bush is't it just amazing?

This pretty bud has been slightly damage by the wind, the edges are a bit brown but it is still very beautiful, don't you think?

and it is VERY fragrant too

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Don't be a stranger my friend - do write something!

Hi Tyra, what gorgeous blooms! I can see why you call it your watercolor rose.

I love the name you gave your gorgeous Rose bush. It looks like some type of Peace Rose to me. :)

Your rose does look as though it was painted with watercolors. Lovely!

Indeed your rose is blog worthy, dear Tyra, and I love your name for this watercolor beauty. I'm beside you this summer, too much going on and much to do ... my blogging days will also be far and few between. But you will always be close in my thoughts ... let's enjoy the gifts of summmer, dear friend :)

En verkligt elegant ros. Den har säkert ett lika passande som vackert namn! Kanske Rose Tyra? ;-) /Ruben

It is a spectacularly beautiful rose, Tyra. I'd be showcasing it, too! Stunning! I hope one of your readers can tell you its name! Know that there is a CA woman out early mornings in the garden, avoiding the hot sun of summer, thinking of you!

Tyra, I don't know its 'real' name but Watercolor seems a wonderful name to give this beauty! Have a sweet week. gail

De är jättevackra och doftar så gott. Kolla in rosorna jag fotat idag som jag precis lagt upp på min blogg.

Ska bli skönt att komma och bo där ute i veckan.

Idag fick jag tyvärr slänga ut pionerna. Har sparat några av de som som ännu inte tappar sina blad.

Could this be 'Dianna, Princess of Wales'? I just read about it listed under Hybrid Tea Roses.
