Bunny Mellon - The Life of an American Style Legend

I was honored to have been asked by the publisher to review Bunny Mellon - The Life of an American Style Legend by Meryl Gordon. What a pleasure this book is.  A lover of gardens and nature from a child through adulthood, Bunny Mellon was passionate about surrounding herself with flowers. Her husband, Paul Mellon was joyfully envious of how horticulture consumed her very existence. 

Quite the mystery woman, loved by many and a sister-friend to Jacqueline Kennedy, Bunny Mellon was asked by John F, Kennedy to design the rose garden at the White House. At age 51, Bunny was not sure she was up to the task, but she also was not going to say no. History speaks for itself and Bunny Mellon remains one of the most well known Aristocratic Lady Gardeners of note.

Enjoy the day!
