Book Description: "Tasha Tudor's nineteenth-century New England lifestyle is legendary. Gardeners are especially intrigued by the profusion of antique flowers in the cottage gardens surrounding her hand-hewn house. In this gorgeous book, two of her friends, the garden writer Tovah Martin and the photographer Richard Brown, take us into the magical garden and then behind the scenes. Tasha's garden reflects a wealth of family lore, perfected through the years and years of working the soil. "Paradise on earth" is how Tasha describes her garden, and along with the flowers and the vegetables that provide her food, her paradise is filled with an enchanting menagerie -- corgies, Nubian goats, cats, chickens, fantail doves, and forty or more exotic finches, cockatiels, canaries, nightingales, and parrots, which inhabit her collection of antique cages. Tasha's beautiful watercolors and her enchanting anecdotes color this sublimely beautiful book."
