"It could be just one more envy-inducing look at how the 1% live, but instead The Gardens of Bunny Mellon is a tribute to a woman who found her passion in beautiful gardens. . . . The self-taught horticulturist didn't just create beautiful green oases in each of the family homes around the world, she also left her mark on some of the most famous gardens on the planet."--American Express Essentials
"The Gardens of Bunny Mellon reveals the horticulturalist's iconic oases, including her Oak Spring estate in Virginia and the White House Rose Garden." --Martha Stewart Living
"The Gardens of Bunny Mellon is part guide--with gorgeous photographs by Roger Foley that could make even the least inclined to go hunting for a trowel--part biography, and part social history. Mellon's passion is apparent throughout."--Vogue.com
"For admirers of the inimitable style of "Bunny" Mellon, and the innate design flair that took her--without formal training--to the White House and Versailles, the upcoming book, The Gardens of Bunny Mellon, is a tome to treasure."--ArchitecturalDigest.com
"Mellon was the garden design master. She designed not only the gardens at all five of her homes spanning across the East Coast and beyond, but also the Rose Garden at the White House for President Kennedy and the formal and vegetable gardens of Hubert de Givenchy's Chateau du Jonchet. These lavish landscape designs are featured in The Gardens of Bunny Mellon, in addition to her own garden plans, sketches, watercolors and archival photographs."--Beach Modern Luxury
