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.

No Blooms - Still Bitter Winter

This post 'No blooms -Still Bitter Winter'... was originally uploaded by Tyra in the blog Tyra's Garden


No blooms for Blooming Friday!


Just an iron urn with a frozen heather in it but I find it rather decorative with its white top hat of snow. This was a glorious winter day but frightfully bitter cold. -20 C. A nice walk and some fun in the snow playing with icicles and making snow angels.


Kylan håller ett fast grepp om Sverige, våren känns hemskt avlägsen. Men det är ju underbart vackert så det är bara att passa på att njuta av vintern, kanske dags för lite skidor? Den här dagen var alldeles underbar med både en skön promenad och lite lek i snön, vi gjorde snöänglar och fajtades med istappar ifrån växthuset.


This is the greenhouse at Leustabruk totally covered in icicles...
the spring is still far far away.


Post and you find more participants at Katarina our host.

I wish you all a great winter weekend

We thought that it was cold here Tyra but seeing those icicles on your greenhouse puts it into perspective :) Keep warm this weekend.

Lovely winter photos, Tyra! We are blessed with balmy 37ºF weather today. Stay warm, dear friend!

Beautiful!

Tyra, Tyra!! Ännu ett fantastiskt collage! Var övertygad om att du hade varit vid Söderfors Bruk. Tyckte jag kände igen "templet". Leufsta är annars en enastående fin miljö, liksom Forsmarks Bruk. Sommaren finaste minne är frukost vid värdshuset (med nästan hela familjen, bland annat barnbarnet) och med en rogivande utsikt över stilla rörelse av vatten och med den övriga vackra parken som kuliss! Det blir ett nytt besök i sommar, det är säkert!

Härligt vintriga trädgårdsbilder- och visst, en skidtur vore härligt! Trevlig helg//Eva

It may be cold, Tyra, but at least it's sunny in your photos! I find that the weather is much more bearable when cold if it's bathed in sunlight. We're into the drearies lately and the lack of sunlight just saps me. But the days are getting longer...

Gela said...

Vilka härliga bilder. Vad härligt med en skidtur, och snöänglar. Vi har tyvärr skidorna vid "sommarstugan" så skidturen får tyvärr vänta till en annan gång. Ha en fin fin helg/Gela

It might be frightfully cold there, but to me it is a fairy land with all that fluffy white snow and breathtaking landscape...Happy Winter Weekend to you too.

Those icicles are amazing! Beautiful horses.

easygardener said...

Beautiful icicles. Our cold spell seems to have passed and the snow has almost gone. I feel quite sad though the novelty might have worn off if it had lasted much longer!
Enjoy your weekend.

So lovely to see icicles and snow, which we never get here! But it must be ccoold for you! Have a great weekend!

andré said...

Visst är det vackert ändå med det kalla vädret, och självklart ska du väl åka skidor. Till och med jag åkte skidor förra veckan! :-)

Shannara said...

Härliga bilder och en härlig vinter i år!

Katarina (Roses and stuff) said...

Blommor eller ej - vintern är fantastiskt vacker! Och nu när värsta kylan har gett med sig, så tycker jag gott den kan stanna ett tag till.
Önskar dig en riktigt skön helg!

It turned cold so fast here in December, before all the leaves were off the trees, we didn't have time to clean the 2nd-story gutters. We have some pretty impressive icicles hanging from our 2nd-floor roof. They are really pretty, but they look dangerous! I try to avoid standing under them when I take George outside.

Your winter pictures are really beautiful Tyra. In spite of the cold, the sun reflecting off the snow makes everything look so bright and beautiful.

Kathleen said...

Those are amazing icicles on the greenhouse Tyra! Wow. Cold, cold, cold. I hope you're staying warm.

Mia said...

Vintern är vacker och ger rum för drömmar, det vita är en perfekt linduk att måla blomster på, alla bilder i huvudet fastnar så bra i planläggningen på allt det vita.

Hannele said...

ut och göra snöänglar ;)

Kan ju inte påstå att jag gillar det här kalla vädret, men det är bättre att det håller sig under nollan hela tiden så att vi slipper slasket.
Vackra bilder!
Ha det gott!
Christer.

Karen said...

Well, snowy winters have their beauties too, as you show. Then you just enjoy spring and summer more because the contrast is so great, perhaps? Hope the wait is not too difficult! These photos are lovely, and those icicles - impressive!

Reflection Through The Seasons said...

Hi Tyra.....
Loved seeing your pictures..... You have what I call ‘proper’ winters. Here in Wales the rain has washed the snow away now leaving the countryside looking drab and lacking colour, so much so that the pictures I took last week simply look black and white.

However, we had a day of sunshine at the weekend which tempted me out of doors to make a start on clearing up the winter debris that has collected.... It was so good to connect with the soil and smell those earthy smells once more.... and what joy to see spring breaking forth with the new shoots of bulbs and plants. I was reminded of a quote I’d read somewhere..... “The world is very old, but in spring it groweth young again”. Have a good weekend. Marion
