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

Fragrant and Tasty

This post 'Fragrant and Tasty' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallséníus-Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden


 October in the Greenhouse




Geraniums, Elberberries, Winters quashes and Lavender



 The growing season for 2010 is almost over and I've cleaned out the greenhouse. Gone are all the tomatoes and most of the chilies too. I have dug up some parsley, tarragon and chives and planted them in pots and brought them into the greenhouse so I can enjoy them a bit longer. Today I harvested the last of the Lavender Lavandula augustifolia and I haven't ever seen them so bright in the colour. If you like the Elderberries Sambucus nigra now it’s a good time to pick them just as the frost has arrived and before the birds eat them. I’m actually going to give them to the birds this year but I'll give my Elderberry harvest to the birds I have outside my kitchen window, then I can watch them eat and that is always enjoyable.




Don't be a stranger my friend I would just love to hear from you!

Så många vackra bilder. Flädern är ju hur fin som helst. Den där glasverandan ser ju skapligt inbjudande ut, där skulle man kunna tänka sig att slå sig ner och njuta av en kopp kaffe och allt det vackra du har. Ta vara på kvällen och mys i höstmörkret.// Peter

TYRA said...

Tack Peter, du är så välkommen!

Marie said...

Hej Tyra. Vilket vacker växthus du har. Uuuunderbar mosaik :-). Fartyget jag fotat vet jag inte vad det heter, men det ligger utmed kajen längs Strandvägen i Stockholm. Ett av alla dessa båtar som folk bor på.

linda said...

I can almost smell the lavender...ah lovely.
Gorgeous post, and it looks to be a gorgeous place to live.

Michelle said...

Elderberries, how pretty, and delicious. They aren't very common around here. Your green house looks so inviting!

Rajesh said...

I have enjoyed you photos, Tyra! Your mosaic is beautiful and what a lovely spot to sit on your porch. I have been looking at your other blogs too ;) Beautiful garden and photos!

Beautiful mosaic and photos, Tyra! What a great idea to feed the birds outside your window. Maybe you cna get some great shots of the birds eating the berries.

thyme2garden said...

Elderberries and lavender sound so charming, just like your green house!

g.suzie said...

Lovely collage, your lavender is beautiful. . .What do you do with the elderberries, just curious?

Shawn Ann said...

All your pictures are just beautiful, as well as your greenhouse. Lovely harvest.

kitsapFG said...

I love elderberry/apple jelly. My mom used to make it all the time. It grows wild certain parts of our state and I need to keep an eye out for a nice stand so I can harvest some in season. Love your photos.

sweetbay said...

Beautiful collage Tyra.. your greenhouse always looks like such a lovely place to be.

Angela said...

Gorgeous greenhouse! I also like the woven fence behind you in that photo on the side.

It is interesting to me that you have lavender and sambuca right now. For me in southern California lavender stopped blooming back in july and our local elderberry, Sambuca mexicana was also fruiting back then. Your plants finish their growing cycle because of cold, mine due to drought.

TYRA said...

Thank you so much for all the comments and so glad to hear from you all. I just think it is so fascinating with blogging. You get in contact with people in a nice and friendly way from all over our globe!

Thank you guys!/ xoxo Tyra

Mary said...

Gorgeous mosaic! I can only imagine how lovely all those flowers are in person :-)

tina said...

Wow Tyra those elderberries are beautiful. I wish I had a spot close by that I could pick them and use them in cooking. I often see them bloom in June but have never been close enough to get them to pick in the fall. They look good and I know the birds will enjoy them tremendously.

On the nandina, I don't have any with berries in my garden. That one picture was taken in Nashville. They are hardy to Zone 6 would they grow in your garden?

Susie på Stjärnarve said...

...att det var vackra bilder på vackra växter och växthus!

Sylvia K said...

Your flowers are gorgeous and I love your collage!! Thanks for the visit/comment, always appreciated! Hope you're enjoying a great week, Tyra!

Daphne said...

I've never had lavender bloom in the fall for me. Yours is lovely. It is so sad though when you put the garden to bed.

Kerri said...

Your collage is beautiful, Tyra.
Elderberries grow wild around our farm and the berries are mostly gone now...eaten by the birds. I have made the juice and frozen it to make elderberry/apple jelly when I have more time for the kitchen.
The pale pink geranium is so pretty and lavender is always wonderful. I haven't had success overwintering it yet, but I continue to try.
Happy autumn to you!

Natti Tyra!
Åh, vilket underbart collage från växthuset!

Charlotte said...

Vackert, vackert Tyra! Helt fantastiskt färgkombination av lavendel och fläder. Ditt växthus är precis så där fint man vill det ska vara... Förstår att du njuter..... Har faktiskt kvar lite blommande lavendel också även uppe hos mig...

Ha det gott!
Kram Charlotte

What a charming collage, and I am sure the birds will definitely thank you when it is cold outside!
