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

September in my Potager

This post 'September in my Potager' was oroginally uploade by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in th blog Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden



I have the privilege to have both Vanessa and Echinacea in my September garden, two very beautiful and highly appreciated visitors. Nice combo, don't you think? I just love this time of the year in my potager. It is still warm and kind of quiet and calm, I have this melancholy feeling but… nevertheless it feels actually rather pleasant.






From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.


The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.

The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.

The sedges flaunt their harvest,
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook,

But none of all this beauty
Which floods the earth and air
Is unto me the secret
Which makes September fair.

T'is a thing which I remember;
To name it thrills me yet:
One day of one September
I never can forget.

Hej Tyra!
Kul att se en Amiral! Här har jag inte sett en enda på hela sommaren i år. Och inte så många citronfjärilar heller som det brukar vara så många av. Säg inte att fjärilarna är på väg att försvinna!!!!! Huh!

Ha det gott
önskar
your favourite blogger!

Så vackert och höstligt stämningsfullt, Tyra! Såg hos Ruben att du skrivit manus till en bok - wow! Så spännande... kan inte sluta tänka på vad den månne kommer att handla om...;)
Ha det fint!

Kære Tyra - det er desværre alt for sjælden, at jeg besøgt din eller andre blogge, men når jeg er inde omkring her, bliver jeg altid så glad for at se dine hyggelige indlæg og ikke mindst din leg med forskellige skrifer. Det er bare så sublimt.
