Tasha Tudor and her constant companion, Minou, are pictured above. Tasha passed away in 2008 at the age of 92. She was an illustrator and author of numerous, award-winning children's books. She also had famously lived a 19th Century lifestyle on a New England farm. Her gardens are legendary and a 1994 book by Tovah Martin gives you a bit of a glimpse of them and her animal friends.
