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

Starflower - Trientalis europaea - Skogsstjärna

This post 'STARFLOWER' was originally uploaded by Tyra in the blog Tyra's Garden


Artic Starflower the small and delicate beauty from the wood.




Oops...I bit late with the blooming Friday post but here are some picture from a walk in the big old forest.


...
Starflower - Skogsstjärna in swedish is the same as Moonshine in english I mean the common term for home-distilled alcohol, especially in places where this practice is illegal. Just some unnecessery knowledge :-)

Arctic Starflower Trientalis europaea is a plant in the Primulaceae family, called by the common name chickweed wintergreen or Arctic starflower. It is a small herbaceous perennial plant with one or more whorls of obovate leaves. The leaves take on a copper hue in late summer. The solitary white flowers (1-2 cm diameter, usually with 6-8 petals) appear in midsummer. Trientalis europaea occurs throughout boreal regions of Europe and Asia, but is largely replaced by Trientalis borealis in correponding habitats in North America. Wikipedia

It is Blooming Friday and Katarina our host have a post about seed and seedheads.

Have a great weekend

TYRA

Ursnyggt collage av det som naturen bjuder på!
Du lyckas hålla ihop "temat" på dina inlägg, vilket gör det hela trevligt och inspirerande.
Trevlig kväll! /Bea

Beautiful wildflower. It reminds me of one of our native wildflowers, Grass-of-Parnassus, which has a similar very special kind of beauty.

Bättre sent än aldrig! Den lilla blomman borde jag väl känna till, men jag gör nog inte det ändå... Väldigt söt! Får ta en skogstur och leta.

Thanks for showing us this lovely wildflower and the meaning of the name. There are still people making moonshine not far from where I live, quite illegally! Thanks too for showing the woodland, I can't get enough woods shots! :-)
Frances
