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

Today's Winter Picture


This  picture was taken this Sunday, it was the day after the big storm, the sun was shining and it was so beautiful.


 However...


Despite the beauty of all the sunny winter days I’m fed up with it!

I really do want the spring to come! Old man winter still got a firm grip, he just won't let go... As I'm writing this post the thermometer says -12,6! (10 Farhenheit) Now that is COLD Bbrrrr, the sky is clear and I can see the stars from my window so I guess the temperature will fall even more during the night.



Today is Valentine's Day and this is the day I start with all my seedlings. I have now planted tomatoes, aubergine, artichokes and chilipeppers, you can read more about that tomorrow in The Greenhouse and Köksträdgården (The Kitchen garden) Perhaps it seems a bit early but these four they do take a long time from seed to harvest.




Happy Valentine to You All!
