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.

Red October - Rose Hips

This post 'Red October - Rose Hips' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden/ Tyras Trädgård


Red October - Rose Hips

Along the shores of the Baltic Sea I often find the lovely berries of the wild roses - the rose hips.
 At this time of the year it is especially nice to take a walk along the rocky shores and pick these nutritious berries. That is if the weather is nice. Today was one of those wonderful October days with high clear air, blue sky, a mild October sun and hardly any wind at all.



Rose hips, red autumn leaves and the last of the Echinacea purpurea


Last night was the first night with ground frost...fall is definitely here. 



I took a few hours  walk along the sea, looking and admiring Mother nature’s flora and fauna and listening to the waves from the Baltic Sea as the gently rolled in.  I made a stop at the very end of the small peninsula and just caught the moment. I had brought some hot cocoa in a thermos and that tasted just wonderful … it always does.

I have one rose that makes hips but I have never tried to make a tea from them. The photo of the shore-line is stunning. It must be a beautiful place to live.

So very pretty, Tyra, and great photographs! Are those roses growing among the rocks?!
I've never tasted rose hips ... how do they taste? With Vitamin C, I'm guessing it's probably Sour?

I smiled when I saw your post was about rosehips as I remember the one about the marmalade.

It's a bumper crop this year here in England :)
