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

I'm Back...Armed with a Machete



After several weeks at sea I'm back on solid ground again. Back to my garden...but what a mess, a small disaster at the first glance. Armed with secateurs, machete, one mile of garden twine I'm ready to attac the 'garden'... jungle. I have had help from my friends with the watering ( a huge thank you to you! ) But as the weather has been wet-wet-wet watering has been easy, another problem accured of course the plants that I put on large tray for easy watering almost drawned instead. I will need to do some 'CPR' on those poor plant they are so pale and sad looking.





The last Lily of the season, a bit sad but it is the bitter truth. I chose this picture for  my August picture, it really stands there all alone in the border, stunning, bright and beautiful. All the other has already faded away into the long sleep of autumn.

  Det känns lite vemodigt att se årets sista lija, den står alldeles ensam i rabatten...men ack så vacker. Resten av liljorna har för länge sedan vissnat och förbereder sig för den långa sömnen

I can understand the feeling of coming back to a garden and feeling as if the plants just had a blast growing while you were absent.

How do you call machete in Swedish? In Pilipino is translated as "bolo". It's nice meeting you.
