Tasha Tudor and Family is very grateful for gardener Jenna! Grateful enough that they sent her to enjoy springtime in Paris! Well, Springtime in Paris in Philadelphia: the 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show in March! This is one of the foremost flower shows, one that is mind-boggling in it's scale. They recreated just about every aspect of Paris in flowers: the flower markets, the underground, the cafes, the couture.
Jenna came back full of awe for the spectacular show. As she says, "We were there 3 days, at the show for 9 hours straight on Friday. The show was a block and a half long with the theme 'Spring in Paris'. Everything smelled amazing. There was still 4 feet of snow in Vermont."

I think her last sentence says it all : There was still 4 feet of snow in Vermont! What a treat in March! Can't you almost smell it? I'm certain that Jenna returned with renewed vigor and excitement for Tasha's garden. Now that the 4 feet of snow are gone, the hard work has begun!
