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.

Ditt västhus är som en dröm, just precis så hade jag velat haft mitt om jag hade haft plats. Romanstiskt. Ordning och reda på insidan också :)

I am glad the windows were put to such good use. I am also glad that the gardening season is in full swing and we can get our hands dirty!
