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

Welcome to a Winter Garden Tour...

"Resarö, Sweden — North winds blow hard from the Baltic Sea and buffet against the willow fence around Tyra Lindhe’s kitchen garden. Designer, author, and creator of one of the most appealing Internet garden sites since 2006, this January, Tyra is showing visitors around her greenhouse made from vintage windows rescued from an attic in her seacoast town in Stockholm County. An ardent photographer, Tyra delights visitors with views of her cobbles-and-millstone courtyard glowing in the last rays of afternoon sun. Then as night falls, this creative gardener lights white candles in the windows and instantly adds even more enchantment." read more...

I know I'm totally bonkers...and love it!

My Indoor Miniature Garden

I got this crazy and wild idea last night that I would like to have an indoor succulent garden ;-) or perhaps more appropriately put an indoor garden with succulents. I know, I know... I'm totally bonkers! This is the result, I'm not finished with it yet, got to get more plants and another kind of lighting. I lined the table drawerI with a piece of plastic coated fabric, added soil and planted my pots into soil and then filled up with crushed cacao shells
Voilà! I got my first miniature garden and it is in my living room. I'm so satisfied with the result, I wonder what my Hubby says when he arrives from Paris tonight. 

Succulents and an orchid in my living room table.

Wish you all a great weekend! Tyra


January in the Garden

This post 'January in the Garden' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog

January in the Garden...well it is certainly not much green out there.

I’m not a huge fan of the month January; as a matter of fact I would like to press the delete button and make it go away. It is the coldest month of the year here on my latitude. I aim for and always wish to work my garden all year around but I must admit I never manage to do that, but I’m stubborn and I’ll never give up. Some time I'll get my four season garden. (Perhaps I have to move)

This is the month for planning and dreaming and this year is no different. I’ve started to plan the structure of my garden and rotation plan for 2013 and I’ve also order some of the seeds that I need.  Now I just have to wait for Valentine’s Day; that is the day when I start off with my sowing indoors on the veranda - Operation Occupation

You have to do the best of we have some pictures to brighten up even the darkest of winter-days

Show Me Your Greenhouse!

 Show Me Your Greenhouse
 - Vis mig dit drivhus

The first garden book to be the read this year was a book from Claus Dalby. In this impressive and heavy plus five hundred pages book, we follow him on a garden tour. The author takes us on a grand garden tour through Scandinavia, visiting hundreds of garden and of course the same amount of astonishing greenhouses.

Claus Dalby has this amazing eye for what to shoot with him camera. That really impressed me on his visit in my garden last fall. He registered in a blink of an eye all interesting items worth detecting in my garden on that very day. He saw exactly those things that I wanted him to notice, most astonishing.  If it was plants or arrangement he caught them all with his camera.

After having read the book I have one greenhouse that really caught my heart and that is the greenhouse at Hørsholm in Denmark. The owners to this magnificent greenhouse are Margit and Knut-Georg Engen. The greenhouse was built in 1948 and has an area of 60 square meters. I love the design it is elegant yet not too extravagant it still looks like a greenhouse should look like if you know that I mean.

If you are looking for a greenhouse design or have a general interest of Scandinavian interior designs this is a good book to start off with. I know that it isn’t in your language but I think it can be of great help anyway as it is most inspirational.

The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden

Nu har jag läst årets första trädgårdsbok och det är en
riktig "tegelsten" från Claus Dalby. Som alla de övriga av Claus andra böcker är det här en
underbar bok att bläddra i, han är riktigt bra fotograf och skriver rakt och
 Han har en fantastisk förmåga att se alla de små detaljerna och det var jag verkligen
fascinerad av vid vårt möte i höstas. Han var så snabb på att upptäcka alla de
små "godbitarna" som fanns att fånga just den dagen i min potager. Om det
så gällde växter, rätta vinklar och alla små vrår så såg han vad jag brukar se och
fånga med mitt öga i min trädgård.

Engen's greenhouse in Hørsholm

Mitt favoritbesök var i det ”Engenska Växthuset” i Hørsholm.
Där bor Margit och Knut-Georg (vilket fint namn, två gamla kunganamn ihopsatta)
Växthuset är från 1948 och har en ansenlig yta på 60kvm, alldeles perfekt,
vilken dröm! Högt i tak och fin nockvinkel. Det här växthuset blev absolut min
favorit när jag samlat alla intryck från boken.

This is a picture that reminds me of a picture by the Swedish artist Hanna Pauli and the picture is "Breakfast time". The photo of my greenhouse looks like it is taken on an early morning in Juni. I can imagine myself carrying out a tray with the breakfast, to enjoy it out in the green. But it is not, it is actually taken by Claus Dalby at his visit in september last fall.

The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden

Här är en bild av mitt växthus som Claus Dalby har tagit och den påminner mig så om Hanna Paulis målning, Frukostdags. Det känns som en försommar morgon där jag precis är i färd med att duka upp till frukost i det gröna men i själva verket är det faktiskt en eftermiddag i september månad.

Om Frukostdags 

"Det är en fin sommarmorgon. Solen skiner. En kvinna vaknade imorse och beslutade sig för att göra frukost till hela familjen ute. 
De bor i en fin by. Omkring deras hus finns en liten skog. Kvinnan tänker att hon ska göra frukost i skogen.  
Hon ställer bordet och stolarna under ett stort träd. Sen dukar hon bordet. När hon är klar väcker hon barnen och sin man. Kvinnan ser glad ut
