In Memory Of Tasha Tudor (1915-2008)

~Remembering Tasha~
Her philosophy on life~TAKE JOY!

~"The gloom of the world is but a shadow behind it,
yet within our reach is joy, Take joy."
~Fra Giovanni

~Remembering Tasha as I looked at the
strawberry moon last night,
And all day as I worked in my garden,
my thoughts were of her!
You will live on in our heart's forever!

~Tasha Tudor's memory will live on...
Through her beautiful books, & illustrations,
Her beautiful art, her love for nature & animals,
Her strength, & her 1830's lifestyle, her inspirational
outlook on life! Her gorgeous cottage style garden
filled with beautiful antique flowers!

~Tasha Tudors Garden ~one of my favorite
books about her! Tasha described her garden
as paradise on earth, many have been lucky
enough to tour her gorgeous garden and I'm
sure they to0 found it paradise on earth, I am
happy to visit her garden whenever I choose
by looking at my favorite book, where I too
can see her garden was truly a paradise with
her six foot tall foxgloves, her glorious heirloom
roses, her camelias, & poppies, and beautiful
peonies, her favorite johnny~jump~ups,daisys,
& lupines and her wonderful fairy ring of dianthus,
Her lilies and her prized holly hocks!
~Just to name a few! :)

Yes Tasha you will live on in our
hearts forever!!
Tasha Tudor
Remember Tasha always
Remember to TAKE JOY!

Again you have done what you do best ... melding the soul of life through your gift of words and beautiful photography. A heartfelt tribute, Cat ... I have tenderly handled many of Tasha Tudor's books. As always, a gal after my own heart. Big hugs from your dear friend.

A beautiful tribute. I did not know that she had past. I have that book of her garden and look at it often. She was one of a kind.

I really sort of thought I might be the only person who felt this admiration of and connection to Tasha Tudor. Her love of animals and gardens, and her ability to live the life SHE wanted to live has always inspired me. Great tribute!
