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

Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis

This post 'Hibiscus Rosa sinensis' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden/ Tyras Trädgård




My all time favourite flower is the Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis. I got my first hibiscus plant on my 10th birthday, that is probably one of the reasons why I like it so very much. I still do remember that day very clearly as if it was just the other day. I remember how my mother had arranged a birthday-table for me with all my gifts upon it and the pot with the hibiscus in the middle as a centerpiece.




Today's Flowers is my Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis - 'The Rose from China'
and  it is Mosaic Monday at Little Red House

Beautiful photos, Tyra, and that was a lovely memory that you shared with us. I'm sure that was the turning point for you, wasn't it? Or were you always a plant-lover?

After all of the cold months, most garden lovers are probably ready to start thinking about the coming planting season. The good news is that there are projects that can be done during the winter in preparation for the coming spring.

I have not seen photos of a hibiscus in such close up detail before Tyra - they are quite intriguing. What a beautiful birthday flower. I am not surprised that you are able to remember your gift so clearly :)

Så vacker den är. Särskilt mittenknappen, lurvig så man skulle vilja klappa den när man ser din bild. Ha en fin vecka !

What a great 10th birthday present Tyra! And equally wonderful you remember it ~ I don't have any recollection of what I received at that age.
Your photos are amazing. That top left photo in your collage is stunning. I've never thought to photograph that part of the flower. Fabulous job!
Hope you're staying warm.

Hibiskus, sådana hade jag några på 70-talet. Sticklingar från utlandsresor. Gillar dem förstås ännu. Läcker bild!
