Writer and illustrator of more than 75 beloved children's books, Tasha Tudor lives a 19th-century lifestyle in the gardens surrounding her hand-hewn house. In this gorgeous book, garden writer Tovah Martin and photographer Richard Brown take readers into the magical gardens called "Paradise"--and behind the scenes. Photographs and watercolors throughout.

I first encountered this book at the library and fell in love with it, and kept checking the book out. So like the other Tasha Tudor books, it was part of a set of her books my husband got me as an early holiday gift. What I like about the book is it deals with the changing seasons and not just spring or summer when things are "growing". Like us she lives in an area that gets snow in the winter, so she knows that there is life amongst the new snow. And like the photo of the purple crocus on page 37 the photos in the book are worth the purchase of the book alone. But her dialogue is like frosting on the cake. And she doesn't just talk about her wonderful life that is eccentric as well as Martha Stewart with sage wisdom mode, but she demonstrates with words and the photos how she puts words into action. This is a book I think people who like cottage gardens or who live in the mountains will LOVE.
