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.

My Potager on Last day of July

This post 'My Potager on the Last day of July' was originally uploaded by Tyra in the blog Tyra's Garden


Well...Last day of July! I find it a bit sad, A kind of melancholy feeling came over me this morning when I took my usual round in the garden. I'm sad that the summer of 2009 is coming to an end and yet I love this time of the year. Love the dark, warm evenings when you can sit outside and enjoy the calmness of the evening. The water in the sea is also kind of warm (20C) and one can take a late evening swim and float aroun for a bit looking at the stars.

Then last but not least it is harvest time. Here are a few pictures from this morning and they are my contribution to this weeks Blooming Friday, you find more participants here at Katarina.



Dahlia x hostensis ' Tomas Edison' among all my veggies, it is huge this year.


Dahlia x hortensis 'Tomas Edison' named after the great inventor Tomas Alva Edison, you know the one with the light bulb. My Tomas really spreads light in my potager just like a bulb :-)

I wish you all a great blooming weekend!

Nog är dahlian vacker, men ditt växthus, det är ju bara till att bli grön av, och så fint det ligger till !!

Arboarkticum said...

Instämmer med Mia... vilket växthus! Flås! :-) Blommor i ett grönsaksland är också bland det vackraste som finns - har aldrig (hittills) haft dahlior i köksträdgården, men ser att det måste bli ändring på det!

Hannele said...

Vilket paradis du har, kram.

easygardener said...

Yes the vegetable harvest has begun. A consolation for the realisation that we are moving deeper into the second half of the year!

Carol said...

Wow! Your Tomas Edison is perhaps one of the most beautiful dahlias I have ever seen! Gorgeous! Your photos too... What a lovely world you have... to float in the sea and gaze at the stars! Lovely!

Carol said...

I just wanted to add that I so admire your fabulous Kale! From Carol in Soggy Massachusetts!

Amanda said...

Hej Tyra, vilken fantastisk grönska du har i din trädgård. Växthuset är en "drömkåk" så vackert gjort. Vacker Dahlia och andra fina blommor bjuder du på. Så roligt att få se hur du har det just nu. /Amanda

Ha det gott

Otroligt fint du har det!!! Lyckost! /Ruben

Green thumb said...

Oh! those are so touching sentiments dear Tyra. I feel the same way except that it is on the last day of the winter season! I guess the scorching hot summers which we have in India explain the disparity in our respective thoughts.
Well, don't feel sad, everything and every season has its own dear charm...

Lillebeth said...

Du har det verkligen fint och frodigt
Och jag håller med dig om vemodet. Fast värst är det runt den 15 augusti.

Roses and stuff said...

Nog känns det att sommaren går mot sitt slut - den är intensiv, men ack så kort... Men din dahlia lyser verkligen upp - den har en fantastisk färg.

Tyra, the dahlia is beautiful! So's the view of the potager/greenhouse in the second photo.

Have a great day!

Bea said...

Åhh...vilket växtrike!! Njuter av din vackra trädgårdsoas - härligt, men vilken odlarmöda du lagt ner där :)
Må gott! /Bea

Haspet said...

Vilken blomsterprakt du har, det är verkligen en underbar om än lite vemodig tid i trädgården just nu. Och när det börjar bli lite kyligare på kvällarna så kan du ju krypa in i ditt underbart vackra växthus, som man blir alldeles sjuk över när man ser, och tända lite ljus och mysa. Väldigt vacker bild på Dahlian också. Ha det gott. // Peter

K said...

I was sad too Tyra, flipping the calendar over to August. I never like the thought of summer ending, I wonder why (of all the seasons), it's the one that seems to fly by the fastest? Your potager is outstanding and that Thomas Edison dahlia most fantastic. I hope these warm August days drag by so we can enjoy every second.
btw, thank you for your encouraging words when I was suffering blog "burn out" ~ they really lifted me.

That was me signed in as "K" Tyra. Hit the enter button accidently! Sorry!

Kathryn/plantwhateverbringsyoujoy.com said...

Oh, here we go. Nostalgia for summer and we are feeling it here as well, dear Tyra, even though I am in California and have at least two more solid months of sun to anticipate, maybe three. Still, you can feel it in the air and in the quality of light: things are shifting, yes, they are. And we sympathize in a happy grateful sort of way. :) Your garden is beautiful, as always.

Jan said...

Everything looks so lush, just like the end of summer should.

Åh trädgården ligger oss alla 3 varmt om hjärtat, speciellt köksträdgården:) Du har en mycket behagligt trevlig och intressant blogg. Så hit kommer vi fler gånger:) Vilken är din Absoluta Favorittårta?

Sunita said...

Tyra, that dahlia is so very dramatic! Whoever named it really knew what they were doing ... it really lights up the garden and puts a smile in you, doesn't it? :)

the inadvertent farmer said...

Ohhh your garden is just lovely and the greenhouse is stunning! Kim

Annika Christensen said...

Ljuvligt underbart Tyra!
Sensommarrabatter är så mysiga tycker jag och ditt växthus kan jag aldrig se mig mätt på.
Ha det gott
