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.

Veronica - Something I've made...

This post, 'Veronica' was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden http://waxholm.blogspot.com/


Saint Veronica



Veronica





Here are some Veronica growing in my garden I think it is Veronica chamaedrys L. but it could be Veronica persica I'm not sure please help me if you know. Ah... now I see that the leaves on the picture no 2 belongs to Saponaria officinalis L.

~~~

Här är lite söta Veronicor som växer i min trädgård jag vet inte om det är Veronica chamaedrys Teveronika eller Veronica persica, Trädgårdsveronika är det någon som vet. Ah... den nedre bilden är inte så representativ för där växer den ibland såpnejlikorna Saponaria officinalis så de är deras blad som syns.

ABC Wednesday V as in ...


something I've made all by myself ...

OK I did have some help from my friend :-)

Veronica, not Saint Veronica though she is a very good human being, not Veronica Mars, although she is born in Mars (Swedish for March), and not Veronica Persica (Common field Speedwell) but she is sometimes called 'Min Persika' (Peaches)




Veronica on the rock! Somewhere out in the Archipelago of Stockholm.




Have a great Wednesday/ TYRA

Du må hilse til Veronica - hun ser virkelig ut som et koselig menneske - vel passende som en god V!

Lovely flower! I wonder how it got its name?

Fint berg Veroniva hittat. Jag är väldigt förtjust i den vilda Verinican, mormors glasögon, har i min trädgår. Ha det bra.

Anna said...

What an absolutely glorious blue !

AnnA said...

Hej Tyra!
Annat namn för dessa små veronicor är "Mormors glasögon". Iallafall fick jag höra det som barn...
Ha det bra så länge&Trevlig midsommar!
Hälsn
AnnA

AnnA said...

PS!
Såg senare att Hannele också kallar dessa veronicor för "Mormors glasögon"...

great V post.

När jag var ute och 'vagnade' barnbarnet igår gick jag förbi en affär som sålde en dörrmatta med texten "NO, NOT YOU AGAIN". Den skulle passa bra till Veronikorna i min gräsamatta! Men visst är de otroligt söta - på rätt ställe! Ha det gott! /Ruben

What a nice post!

Interesting to read how 'Berenice' became 'Veronica'. I can see how that must have happened, though I would never have guessed at the name's origins. And your friend Veronica looks fun!

Marie Reed said...

Veronica on the rock! Perfect!

Kanak Hagjer said...

Loved the Veronica connection! Fun post!

Rose said...

Veronica on the rock certainly looks like she's enjoying herself! Lovely blue veronica, and one of my favorite flower names.

What a perfect choice for today's V and I so enjoyed your last photo! Very inspiring visit for me.
Thanks for sharing your talent.

Neva said...

I have not heard of St. Veronica but then most people haven't heard of St. Viator either!

Tumblewords: said...

Very talented, you are! Beautiful photos...

Hi, Tyra! That music vid really had me laughing! Were those the Grandfathers taking their children kiting? Lovely and thank you for sharing. We don't often find those old songs in our lives. :)

Kathleen said...

Hi Tyra. What a pretty Veronica. I'm not acquainted with this one or your Veronica on the rock!! ;-)
It looks like a great place to sit tho. Hope your garden is growing well? Hugs.

I love the Veronica on the Rock photo. Could not reach your post the first time. Thanks for visiting our blog and comments.

joey said...

Am a big fan of veronica (mine is blooming) and St.Veronica ... your Veronica on the rock is also delightful. Hugs!

Weeping Sore said...

I like Saint Veronica on the Rock best of all! Your other pics are, as usual, lovely. You always manage to avoid "cute" flower pictures and instead show me something I've never seen before.

Veronica on the rock said...

"Saint" Veronica is on a rock out at Sprickopp in the Archipelago of Stockholm. A beautiful little group of islands that we try to visit each year.

I'm proud to carry the same name as these small blue wonders and love finding them everywhere.

Thanks for this weekend!
