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.

Tuesday

Meet Dear John.



節氣 Quifen





We are now on the 23th of September entering the Quifen, the autumnal equinox is here and the summer of 2010 is gone, the days are getting shorter and shorter by the day. The leaves colors are starting to fade and soon they will fall. In the garden this morning I met my friend John, he is a Canadian, I took some picture for you so you can meet my darling John Davis the Explorer Rose from Canada. A little bit wet and cold but he looks like he is enjoying the September days, the last days of summer.



Thank you Canada for giving us these hardy Explorer Roses!





Visst är han grann min John Davis, han är faktiskt snyggast så här års. Han gillar september och det brukar jag också göra men i år har den varit dötrist tycker jag. Är du intresserad av härdiga rosor eller rosor i huvudtaget så kan jag rekommendera en tur till Söderfors, där ligger Trädgårn' och dom är riktigt duktiga på rosor.

Vilken vacker ros, gillar honom skarpt =)...och att den är så vacker nu i september är ju ett stort plus. Trist med regn solen lättar ju upp sinnet men det blir himla vackra bilder på regndropparna i rosens blad o som sagt så är det ju bra för svamparna.. *ler*.. ha det gott/ MOa

Vacker!
Föll för ett par kanadensiska rosor på Älvsjömässan förra året. En av dem har blommat flitigt hela sommaren och håller fortfarande på.
Ha det gott

John is handsome Tyra!! Very beautiful shots you took of him too.
It makes me sad to read that the summer of 2010 is over. I know it is but to see it in print is hard to swallow. I want a "do-over!!"
Hope you had a good one. You sure had some nice sailing pictures.
Happy Fall!

Hi Tyra
What a nice guy. I didn't know this kind of roses and well, it could be something for my garden too, because winters get quite cold here.
The rain drops on Johnnys petals look very nice! Nice picture and a wonderful collage.
Kind regards from a rainy day in Switzerland
