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.

Mauve Taupe



Magical Pale 'Mauve Taupe' Pinks


Pale pink sun trying to break through... but no. Beautiful icicles in pale pink hanging from the roof some of them are almost a metre long and some pale mauve pink tulips at the end.





"Mauve (pronounced /ˈmoʊv/ (British), rhymes with "grove"; from the French form of Malva 'mallow' is a pale lavender-lilac color, one of many in the range of purples. Mauve is more grey and more blue than a pale tint of magenta would be. Many pale wildflowers called "blue" are actually mauve. Sometimes mauve can be considered a dirty pink or a shade of purple. Mauve can also be described as pale violet. Another name for this color is mallow. source: Wikipedia - Mauve






This last photo is an old photo from the winter of 2006, the frosty roses of ice on my greenhouse windows.

When I was a child my mom bought new carpet that was mauve. I will never forget that color or that carpet.

Den stigen var ju spännande och vacker..
Jag njuter faktiskt av vintern fast det jag saknar mest är nog dofter.
Ha det gott

You always manage to capture the light so beautifully. I love the image of the sunrise lighting up your greenhouse. What an extraordinary image.

I haven't thought much about the color "mauve" for a long time. I remember carpet that color too! I also had a grandmother named Maude which always makes me think of "mauve" too (for some reason)? Anyway, I think you could bring that color back in high style with these photos! Great job Tyra. The ice crystals are gorgeous and I love your blog header too!

Mauve ger ett väldigt lugnt och mjukt intryck.Precis vad dina bilder gör ,trots vassa istappar och iskristaller. Snyggt!

Hej, du frågade för länge sedan vad det var för ros jag visade. Orange och kopparfärgad. Måste säga att jag ej kom ihåg namnet på den. Men har efterforskat bland mina gömmor och har nu sett att det är en Gavnö som jag planterade ifjol. Hoppas den klarar sig. Glad och uppiggande färg. Inser att jag bör göra en inventering över vad jag har i trädgården. Börjar bli rätt mycket nu...
Ha en fin fin dag. Snart blir det takdropp/Gela

That is just so beautiful! I always did like the color mauve, as it wasn't too pink, but still went with everything! It is still such a pretty color especially on your photos!
