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.

Auricula - Fading beauty - Equinox


What an honour!


New logo



Many thanks for choosing me to be this weeks Guest Friend
 at TODAY'S FLOWER# 85 ( 21 of March)



March is the month that I sow all the seeds for my potager, my veranda is more like a nursery now and not at all the cosy place that we use to have our meals in. But I love my 'nursery' I love the smell of the warm moist soil and fragrance of the seedlings.



It is still a 'no dig' garden outside my window :-) an less you want to shovel some snow and that's why it is so great to escape into my photo albums or to read all the wonderful garden blogs. What would it be without you guys?

 My answer is utterly, utterly boring!



Auricula, this is a favourite in early spring, I usually grow them from seed but right now I'm waiting for a delivery of Auriculas from UK and I'm so eager to see how they look. I’ll keep you posted.





Spring is also the 'Tulip Time'

This spring I have been able to find tulips in wonderful pale colours I'll show you three of them here the first in pale pink and the other in pale mellow yellow. Both of them were very fragrant too. Last photo is of a fading beauty. I just love fading tulips, they are really fading with grace...hm I wish I were a tulip.




Fading beauty with light, fragile, silk-like petals.



Just as I'm now sitting here writing this post it is the Vernal Equinox
 Finally 12 hours of light per day.... Sing Hallelujah!

Tyra, you will never fade! But IF you do, it will be like the most beautiful tulip! I´m sure!!

Hallelujah! Hör du sången! Visst är det underbart med ljusare tider och inte minst med alla frösådder.
Ha det gott!
Christina

Sing Hallelujah, dear Tyra ...welcome Vernal Equinox and 'The Rite of Spring'! Happy hugs :)

Petit Eyekiss said...

Underbart. Jag är också helt tokig i vissna tulpaner. På något sätt är det mer liv i dem då , än när de är nya. Precis som med oss kvinnor:-)
Härlig vårdagjämning också .
Det rinner och porlar överallt. Såg också att iden i hamnen gett sig iväg.
Trevlig kväll!
Elisabeth

Trädgårdsmakare Hillevissan said...

Ja, kära nån som vi gärna delar denna härliga känsla av vår, speciellt detta år... Halleluja var ordet:-)

Fin blogg du har Tyra, Och jag tycker det ser så läckert ut när du sätter text på dina bilder:-) Gör man det i Photoshop, eller?

Jag förstår inte varför jag inte funnits på din följarlista tidigare...
Vi hörs snart igen, och hoppas värmen fortsätter imorron, det var så underbart att få syn på första snödroppen idag härhemma:-)

Wonderful post with such a beautiful array of flowers. I also love your shot of the flowers and butterfly on the Today's Flowers homepage.

Sunita said...

Can I send you some of the sunlight from Mumbai? It's a bit too much for us to handle now :P
That Auricula looks breath-taking! Its so unfair that it wont grow here!
Happy Spring, my friend. And yes, I wish I were more like a tulip too ;)

leavesnbloom said...

The tulips look so delicate and beautiful in their pastel hues. I find it hard to grow auriculas here in my garden - but they are little beauties.

Randi said...

Grattis Tyra! Kul att se dig som Guest Friend idag! Dina bilder är helt underbara - jag har också en förkärlek till vissna tulpaner och skälet det visar just dina bilder. Önskar dig en fortsatt skön vårkväll.
Kram Randi

Coffeedoff said...

Beautiful flowers and great photos!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Very beautiful, Tyra, especially that last one. Growing old gracefully, indeed! And I love that inline typeface you are using as on the word Tulip in the second from bottom photo. What is it?

I am enjoying your other garden blog and want to see a detailed plan of what you are growing! I love to garden also and need to get those seeds started.

Kathy said...

Congratulations on being chosen for guest host this week. Your flowers are absolutely delightful and the header picture for Today's Flowers of the butterfly and the bloom could be a magazine cover!

Annika Christensen said...

Så mycket vackert du visar.
Auriklar upptäckte jag nog ordentligt först förra året.
Älskar dem och måste nog ha fler liksom...
Tack för din fina kommentar ang frimärkt.
Det är på rulle och jag för nöja mig med ett... vilket jag gör till 100% det känns så fantastiskt att lilla jag som inte ens hade en dator för några år sedan har fått bidraga med bild till ett frimärke.
Fattar knappt själv.

Ha en bra dag
Annika
