Tasha Tudor is one of my favorite artists. She was the author and illustrator of many children’s books, including my favorite edition of The Secret Garden, and she is beloved worldwide. She was born 100 years ago today, and so to celebrate her centenary, I bought a copy of a lovely book about her: Tasha Tudor’s Garden, by Tovah Martin, with beautiful, beautiful photographs by Richard W. Brown.
There is so much beauty and inspiration in this book! I look forward to reading it and learning more about Tasha Tudor, about her elegantly “simple” lifestyle, and about her gorgeous gardens. I will read it slowly, absorbing as much as I can of the natural beauty she created and surrounded herself with during her long life.
Please visit her family website to learn more about her life and her work.
I had this book for Christmas last year – and I agree the photography is beautiful – she had such wonderful ideas about gardening – I have often wondered what it looks like now since she has passed away. No matter how other gardeners make take care of it, it will never be the same as when she kept it for it was her passion.
I love this post. Visiting Tasha Tudor after a long time is a treat. Lovely her gardens. Lovely her drawings. Thanks to you, Robin.
