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

Easter Cactus "in Floribus"




ICE...Brrrr





Sadly but true, and oh-so-common in April we get this setback in nature. Cold winds have given us really cold nights with many degrees below zero. Every morning I find a thick layer with ice in my wooden water barrels. But during the day we have had sunny but still a bit nippy gorgeous April weather. I spend a lot of time in the greenhouse where there is 23 degrees C. (74F) and no wind whatsoever, that’s the way I like it.









Today Ester start and I wish you all a wonderful Easter Holiday! / xoxo Tyra

Så enormt krispigt vita och vackra kaktusar! Ja, vädret är nyckfyllt även här nere. Igår var jag vinterklädd nere vid havet...kändes som höst. Dagen innan jobbade jag i trädgården i linne. Tur att vi har växthusen! Önskar dig en riktigt GLAD PÅSK!

Aprilväder - verkligen!
Men våren behöver inte ha alltför bråttom. Vill gärna hinna med :-))
Glad Påsk

Lite väl kallt tycker jag.
Jag har bläddrat i din bok många gånger sedan jag fick den.
Den är jättefin. Kul när man känner någon som gjort boken själv.
Grattis till den.
Kanske vi ses i Stockholm på mässan?
Glad Påsk på dig
