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

Hippeastrum - Amaryllis 'Sweet Nymph'


This post Hippeastrum - Amaryllis 'Sweet Nymph' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden



'Sweet Nymph'


Soon January is coming to its end and so it is for all my dear Hippeastrums (Amaryllis). I have had six different varieties this year and they sure have given my so much joy. This is one of the last, the stunning 'Sweet Nymph'










'Sweet Echo, sweetest nymph, that liv'st unseen

Within thy airy shell
By slow Meander's margent green,
And in the violet-embroidered vale
Where the lovelorn nightingale
Nightly to thee her sad song mourneth well:
Canst thou not tell me of a gentle pair
That likest thy Narcissus are?'




John Milton (1608-1674), 'Comus'
