This past Sunday, August 28th, marked Tasha’s 101st birthday! At Corgi Cottage the day was sunny, hot and humid, just the kind of weather Tasha liked most. Were she still with us she likely would have spent her birthday tending to her garden, lush and overgrown in that extravagant late summer way, perhaps stopping in the afternoon for tea on the porch (sipped hot even on a day as balmy as this!) and home baked cake with her family.

You may have heard about Tasha’s birthday on Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac, where he honored her birthday and shared a little about her life and many accomplishments. We are so thrilled that Tasha’s legacy continues to be shared with new audiences! What a wonderful birthday surprise!
