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.

Monday

Peace-in-the-home ~ Soleirolia soleirolii


Mother of thousands,
 Angel's tears or Irish moss?


What do you call this little darling, we call it hemtrevnad and of all the english names of this plant I think Peace-in-the-home is the closest equivalent.
It is Easter Monday and the last day of the Easter Holiday. We have had a most wonderful Easter even wheather-wise until today, another set back in the wheather...but they say it will be over quickly and the spring will be back tomorrow.

Mosaic Monday




"The plant Soleirolia soleirolii (syn. Helxine soleirolii) of the nettle family has a number of common names, including baby's tears, angel's tears, mind-your-own-business, peace-in-the-home, pollyanna vine, mother of thousands, and the Corsican curse. It has also been called Irish moss; however, it is not a moss, nor should it be confused with Sagina subulata or Chondrus crispus, which are also known as "Irish moss". It is a delicate-looking creeping herb with juicy bright green or yellow leaves and multitudes of tiny white flowers. It grows close to the ground in mats and is sometimes used in ornamental gardens alongside ferns and other moisture-loving type of plants." wikipedia

I remember seeing this over at the nursery and now I know what it is. It seems to cover a small space in no time!
Have a great day!

Tyra I just love this little plant - did you know that you can get it in 3 different colours - there is the dark green, a yellower green and a greyer green. We call it "Mind your own business" over here in the UK.

Jätteefin mosaik du gjort!
Tänk att jag aldrig har lyckats med hemtrevnad. Jag undrar vad jag gjort för fel?

My grandma has baby's tears growing between her paving stones in the garden - they do spread quickly! I especially like the footed silver bowl you're using as a planter - lovely!

Hej Tyra

In the Netherlands we call it "Slaapkamergeluk", translated into Swedish it is "Sovrumlycka".
You have a beautifull Garden en and I enjoy your blogs. I found it on the internet when I was looking for Resarö holiday house.
Have a nice weekend,
groetjes Willy
