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


Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day - Potager & Greenhouse

This post 'Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day - Potager & Greenhouse' was originally uploaded by Tyra in the blog Tyra's Garden

October started out with harsh winds and some tough cold days with frost at night. It is slowing down in the garden, the harvest is thinning out although I still find some late 'treasures' in the potager. It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day once again and thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens, we get to see all the lovely in gardens around the world and what is 'in floribus' just now, fascinating isn't it.

One of the last roses...I think, you never know

This Auricula is generally a spring flower, but this Primula auricula one just wanted to get some fresh autumn air.

Geramiums in the greenhouse

The Cichorium has been 'in floribus' in my potager since June

Gerbera in the greenhouse, I think a wonderful splash of colour ...


This Honeysuckle is a cutting I took from the mother plant in July and it spreads a wonderful fragance in the greenhouse at the moment.

Here comes the sun tadadada... (I'm singing the Beatles song) Calendula officinalis is another 'sun' in the potager, self sown, I like that, here in good company with the parsley.

and the last picture is of my monk in the potager 'Franciscus cupani'

That's all folks!

Hi Tyra, even after some frost, it all is lovely. Your chicory is such a sky blue color, it grows wild here and needs to come live in the garden with other wildlings. Your sweet pea is the sweetest ever! :-)

Rosa said...

That photo of the Auricula is superb as are all the others.
Better than postcards!

tina said...

Enjoy the sun and your lovely blooms Tyra. They look great!

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Honeysucle is my favorite here, but all the blooms are lovely. Happy Bloom Day, Tyra!

Dave@The Home Garden said...

What a great photo of the roses! Everything else looks really nice too. I like those sweat peas. What program do you use for your watermarks?

Ruben said...

Tjusigt, Tyra!!! Första gången jag ser en vit Honeysuckle (kommer inte ihåg vad den heter på svenska). Kan tänka mig att du njuter av doften!

Have a nice weekend from Eva Linnea

Tyra, Not only is the honeysuckle a beautiful white, but you said it had a wonderful fragrance. I love them...unfortunately the non native variety is invasive...But I still love the scent! The sweet peas are still looking wonderful! Happiest of days Tyra! gail

You have beautiful flowers for Bloom Day! I love 'John Davis'. Which species is the Honeysuckle? Japanese Honeysuckle grows here, and although it's invasive it has the most divine fragrance.

I see lots of good stuff, Tyra ... this is the time of year I would love to have a greenhouse for so many goodies I must say goodbye to. Enjoy a beautiful autumn weekend :)

Så mycket fint, trevlig helg, kram.

Marie said...

Lovely photos and lovely flowers. I can almost smell the beautiful honeysuckle. Happy Bloom Day!

I can imagine how wonderful your greenhouse must smell from that honeysuckle. Where I used to always walk I could smell the honeysuckle before I could spy it amongst the trees. There's nothing like it. Love your rose too.

Tyra - how wonderful that you still have so much colour and so many blooms in October.

It is strange how the Primulas seem to be blooming so early!

Carol said...

So many beautiful blooms Tyra! Your greenhouse must be heaven right now. Lovely all! Carol

Jan said...

It amazes me that so many of the plants we both grow must now be in your greenhouse. I know your climate is so much colder than mine, but I would not have thought that it is already so cold that things must be protected. Take care.

Always Growing

Beautiful blooms Tyra, and I enjoyed the 'musical accompaniment!' Here Comes the Sun is a good song to have stuck in one's head, especially this time of year.

John Davies är en favorit!

Kathleen said...

I think your potager would get me thru the winter so much easier than I do without one. So many beautiful blooms in there right now Tyra. Funny about the primula blooming ~ I have a denticulata that wants to bloom now too ~ I keep telling it that it's confused. Happy "late" bloom day.

Jättefina bilder Mousch, framför allt rosen som möter första frosten och den vita kaprifolen!

Ser fram emot att ses ikväll!


Ellie said...

Such beautiful pictures! And I can't believe how many flowers you have in your garden and greenhouse! I will have to do better!
I've been following your blog for almost a year now and I absolutely love it.

greetings from the Netherlands,
