There’s a drift of snow at the back door, and snowdrops blooming at the front.

Tasha Tudor’s Garden




Snowdrops are the first flowers I see in spring. They reseed themselves; every year it is a joy to see the tiny white bells nodding in the breeze in different areas of the garden.

Happy Spring! See more of Tasha Tudor here.

      The white bell flowers are refreshing against the brown landscape. ๐Ÿ™‚
      We must add some to your garden in the fall.

    How charming, Ellen! I’m so glad your snowdrops are in bloom. Just lovely!

    Love that Tasha Tudor quote. I keep Tasha Tudor’s Garden in a prominent place on my library shelf. Simply adore her.

    Thanks for this lovely post today. Happy spring! xox

      It had always been my dream to visit Tasha’s gardens. The tickets always sold out fast. Finally we were able to get tickets. We knew ahead of time that Tasha would not be going with us on the tour. While walking around I felt her presence; sadly the gardens did not look like the gardens in her books; there were no flowers anywhere. We found out later when we went back to town that she had past a couple days before.

        Oh, how tragic! Tasha was magical, and no two ways about it. I don’t doubt that you felt her spirit everywhere in her gardens, but how sad that her flowers weren’t there to greet you. I wonder whether anyone has stepped up to keep Tasha Tudor’s home as the garden oasis it formerly was? I consider her a National Treasure. She had an enormous impact on my childhood, and I still count her among my very favorite authors.
