Reviews

Previously unpublished photographs and journal musings from the archive of gardening designer Rachel "Bunny" Lambert Mellon (1910-2014) are beautifully paired in this collaboration between writer Holden (The Gardens of Bunny Mellon), designer Huffman, and Mellon's grandson Lloyd.
A quote from one of her famous clients testifies to her pragmatic methodology--former first lady Lady Bird Johnson, admiring Mellon's design of the White House's Kennedy Rose Gardens, described her as having a "working-at-it kind of knowledge" of her craft. Celebrating Mellon's life and legacy, this intimate rendering evokes nostalgia and adds nuance and depth to the public portrait of a late, great gardener.-- (07/20/2020)
