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

I bet they will looks stunning as a cake decoration or floating in one cool summer drink. Last year I scattered out some seeds and violá...here they are in my potager.

Today's Pictures - Happy Faces of May.
This is the time of year my garden luxuriate with pansies. I have them everywhere, I have my "happy faces" in the greenhouse as well as in the potager. I think this one is stunning, very spectacular, almost gross.
After an amazing and truely enchanting April I must say that May has started really bad, for the season, it is frightfully cold. But I'm glad to say that they predict better weather for the coming weekend. Let's hope so!
...and now to a less "vulgar" Viola, a very sofisticated lady in black.
