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

Wild Flowers Native to the Forest Floor




April Blooms

The wild flower ~ Common Hepatica ~






Today the botanical name is Hepatica nobilis but Carl von Linné gave it the name Anemone hepatica. Common names: Common Hepatica, Kidneywort, Liverwort, Pennywort. This little pretty flower is a member of the Ranunculaceae family that is native to the forest floors of temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. In my country you are not allowed to pick the Hepatica nor dig it up. In the beginning of April each year we can admire and enjoy its astonishing yet uncomplicated beauty in the woods. Among the dry leaves on the forest floor this little fellow reaches up towards the sun and says 'Hello it is spring!'

 I wish you a lovely week 



...and now something in my native tongue

Blåsippan ute i backarna står,
 nigen och säger att nu är det vår!


Se men inte röra!

 Jag hörde på naturmorgon i morse att Blåsippan är fridlyst i hela landet.
I bland kan man hitta blåsippor som är nästan röda, lite cerice rosaröda i färgen och de kallas rödsippor men är alltså samma blomma. Hepatica nobilis och tillhör familjen Ranuculaceae. Läs mer om vår älskade blå sippa här i Den virtuella floran Det äldre vetenskapliga namnet var Anemone hepatica

Ojsan har blåsipporna redan börjat titta fram där i Stockholmsområdet, då borde de komma här med då inom de närmsta veckorna. Gudomligt söta, tack för att du delade med dig av vårblomstren.

Mimi said...

Jag låter också bli blåsipporna, utom en enda liten planta som jag flyttat till min trädgård, men det räknas nog inte för den har fortsatt komma upp och blomma där. Härliga vårens budbärare! Hälsn mimi

Beautiful! I still remember being really excited when I saw these in the wild for the first time years ago on a hike in Bavaria.

Du må tro jag saknar blå- och vitsippsbackarna. De är för mig riktiga vårtecken. Här finns de inte alls. Jag har planterat de röda i mitt woodland, men det blir aldrig detsamma.

Putting Hepatica on my must-have list. Also, I am hoping it is hardy here in Alaska.

Hepatica is one of my favorite wildflowers. The stamens and the color are so beautiful.

Naturegirl said...

Tyra such a dainty little flower with such astonishing detail and color!! Love it! I hope you are enjoying the Spring gardening!

Judy said...

The hepatica are lovely, but my favourite shot is the swirly abstract design - how did you do that?

bland det finaste på våren, kram.

Bea said...

Åhh..vilket vackert vår-collage med Blåsippor - njuter!
Jag ha en enda liten tuva Blåsippa och den skiftar i blått redan, trots att snön har just precis lämnat den.
Ljuva vår med alla dessa vackra sippor!
Må gott! /bea

Älskade lilla Blåsippa, som tur är har vi mängder som växer vilt på tomten. dessutom i olika nyanser.Den konstnärliga blåsippan är inte så dum den heller
