Blackberry Flowers and Bouquet of Carrots

This post, 'Blackberry Flowers & Bouquet of Carrots' was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden.


Blooms and Harvest in Tyra's Garden - July

I don't think I have really looked properly at the flower of the Blackberry bush before but this morning I did and to my surprice I found that they in fact very beautiful.


and for this weeks Blooming Friday a bouquet of a slighty different kind...

a bouquet of carrots


Daucus carota, Yummie food for Peter Rabbit and hungry gardener. This year I grow both the ordinary yellow carrots and then I found a dark red variety as well. It is very pretty when you slice it into a mixed sallad because it is orange/yellow in the middle.

I wish you all a great weekend

Happy gardening!/ TYRA

Jo björnbär har vackra blomster. Tycker dom är urtjusiga nu i köksträdgården! Jag prövade med röda morötter ett år men jag tyckte att stängeln i mitten var så hård och trådig. Det låter som om du har en annan erfarenhet, vad bra.

I, too, think blackberry flowers are so pretty, but I don't like the thorns on the stems. I have these popping up in the garden all the time and have to pull them up constantly.

Ljuvlig morotsbukett! Vi odlar också gärna de lila morötterna (Purple Haze heter vår sort), och kokar på dem en ljuvligt vinröd morotsmarmelad smaksatt med ingefära och lite stjärnanis. Sensationellt snygg och god till exempel till grönmögelost! :-)

The blackberry blooms look delicate and beautiful. As for the bouquet of carrots....I love the idea!! They look great too!

Happy days!!

Vad delikata de ser ut, dina morötter. Kan tänka mig att de smakar jättegott! /Ruben

Mums, vi har söta egna.

Hej Tyra, den där morotsbuketten är väldigt dekorativ! Underbar grönsak som vi äter massor av. Och en mörkröd har vi lyckats köpa ibland också - den är extra god!
Trevlig helg!

Cecilia Artista said...

Vacker morotsbukett! Jag förstår att den röda moroten blir vacker i sallader!

Camellia said...

Läckra morötter! Blommorna är som du säger väldigt vackra. Suck, här har jag bara blomlösa, sterila – men väldigt taggiga björnbärsrankor, rent ogräs!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Tyra both bouquets are beautiful .. and yes ! I think we miss a lot of opportunities with common or unusual views to other types of "bouquets" ?
Very pretty post : )

Amanda said...

Hej Tyra, nu besöker jag din trädgård för första gången. Jag får njuta av blommorna jag ser, då vi sedan några år bor i en lägenhet. Björnbär är goda bär och har en vacker blomma. Min svärmor hade en brörnbärs buske, som klättrade efter huset södervägg. Den gav många bär. Vilka härliga morötter du visar.

Vacker bukett med morötter! Har under några år nu odlat lite sommarmorötter men i år är morotsflugan på hugget så nästa år får jag hitta på något annat än morötter att odla.
Fortsatt skön sommar

Hi Tyra! Both bouquets are beautiful!

Kathleen said...

Flowers & food, doesn't get much better, does it? I've never paid attention before either but you've photographed the flowers beautifully. I bet the carrots taste wonderful. Have a great weekend too Tyra.

This year I found a thornless blackberry and planted it adjacent to a sunny arbor. The best I can say is that it's still alive. It even has some new growth, so I know it's busy underground. I don't know how long I'll have to wait for flowers and berries. Meanwhile, I can enjoy your pics.

I love your carrot bouquet. Very pretty.
