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.

Apricot Parrot is one of my favourite of all tulips, Tyra. Just seeing this photo made this frozen day seem much, much warmer. Happy New Year to you!

Ah...so very beautiful! Since tulips do not grow here, I don't know much about them. I've never seen them all curled up...magnificent!

Happy New Year, Tyra!

Underbar!
Gillar också papegojtulpanerna. Ibland har jag odlat fram egna snittulpaner.
Ha det gott

Ååhhh...nu är tulpanerna på gång. Underbar och färgsprakande bild! I "min" butik kostade de en förmögenhet igår, men snart blir det mer normala priser. Älskar tulpaner...de andas vår!
Kram

tulpaner är så fantastiskt! Det är verkligen vårkänslor som det smäller om det. Dock tycker jag de är lite dyra än så länge.

Jag är lite nyfiken på hur de lyckas få fram tulpaner så tidigt. Än är det ju flera månader till de blommar "naturligt".
