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.

Bath and Blooms

What a great way to start the week

I really enjoy making collages so I thought why not join the Mosiac Monday club meet new wonderful people from allover the word. It sure is going to be exciting to see all the great work out there. This is my first contribution and I call it Bath and Blooms. 

Bathroom with a nautical touch and Peonies

The peony is named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil; Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower (wikipedia)

I wish you all a great week, this week with the beginning of the Easter holiday

and I also would like to say Thank you to our host Mary.

Nice mosaic, Tyra. I hope you're enjoying the spring. Have a great day!

Anna said...

A most bright and cheerful image on a wet Monday morning Tyra. Was not familiar with the myth behind this flower - Zeus certainly came up with a most imaginative solution :)

Gorgeous photos! I adore peonies (current header is full of them!) & did not know the origin of their name. I learn so much blogging!

Sending wishes for a very happy Easter!

Bobbi said...

Very beautiful mosaic!

colorchic said...

Beautiful Mosaic! I will definitely be a frequent visiter to your gardening blog, thanks for inviting me to it! Is it possible to translate that blog into English? I may have just missed it. PS I always hope to get to your country as it is where my Grandfather was from. Have a great day!

Underbar komposition. Det lite grova marina mot de skira pionerna.

Lavender Cottage said...

Nice mosaic, and I bet that peony is fragrant.

Monica fra Koseleg said...

Synest din mosaic var veldig fin, så flott med kontrasten mellom den sarte blomsten og det mørke treverket. Jeg har også laget en kollasj i dag- ta en titt på min blogg- og legg gjerne igjen en kommentar. Jeg liker også veldig godt din mosaic med juleroser som jeg så i en tidligere artikkel- så harmoniske fargekombinasjoner!
Ønsker deg en God Påske!
Vennlig helsing Monica

Just as soon as I figure out how to do those clever collages, I'm in for Mosaic Monday. I am thinking the peonies in my yard still have two months before I get to smell them. Too bad for me.

Love that porthole! Brass and wood is such a great combination - it adds so much visual warmth!

Oh, Tyra, this is very cool. Welcome to the wonderful world of mosaics! I don't want my husband to see this or he'll want a nautical bathroom. (he was a commercial lobster fisherman for many years).
