Mosaic Monday: Even More Bunny



Just like the title says, here is even more Bunny for you.  That's Bunny Williams, fabled American interior designer.  I visited her garden in June, as part of the Garden Conservancy's Open Days program.  The garden has beautiful bones, with brick and stone-paved areas, often edged with boxwood.  There are beautiful evergreen topiaries as well.  Also shown in these photos are two of the porches, with fabulous antique garden furniture and ornaments.  In addition to her design business, Ms. Williams has a store called Treillage, which sells antique and modern garden accessories.  Lastly, there are a few photos of the small water feature, complete with giant koi.

I've still got at least one more Bunny post, and two other gardens from my visit to Connecticut.  In the meantime, how is your weather these days?  We've finally gotten a break from the horrible heat wave, and have had a few beautiful summer days.  A few days of rain have helped to replenish the aquifers, too.  Oh, and we have tomatoes!  I planted a few tomatoes in containers on the deck, and we harvested our first cherry tomatoes last week.  I know some of you have big beautiful vegetable and flower gardens, but here in New Jersey, we fight constantly to save our gardens from the enormous deer population.  So we look upon our harvest with particular joy.  :)

  2. Beyond the architecture of her home and the plan of her lovely gardens, the beautiful foliage, I'm looking at her amazing containers. There is one that is so incredible that I return to it again and again. Wonder if I can do that with a lump of concrete...hmmm...

    We've had glorious summer days with low humidity and plenty of sun. Not much rain to speak of, though we're being promised changes. I want no changes. =D

  7. It makes me tired to think of all the upkeep of such a beautiful home. I can hardly get the weeds out of my flowerbeds. I loved the flourish on the windows to make them look like curtains. Beautiful home. Valerie

  15. The elegance of that garden always strikes me.
    We are still (still!) waiting for summer. It was 14 today (that's about 57 for you south of the border) - definitely sweater weather!

  21. I have never seen so many beautiful things at one place! Her place is FABULOUS! And Your photos are wonderful! Glad you are getting some relief from the heat. We too have had some rain and got somewhat "cooler" weather, but the humidity is right up there still. Thanks for hosting today's Mosaic Monday.

  22. Love your photos, Mary! They make me want to visit this location as soon as possible, which is the mark of a great travel photo. :) The house itself is so like the one my father grew up in on the Hudson River. Classic and charming. Thank you so much for the tour! xoxo – g

  26. Hi Mary!

    I am intrigued by the window details in the second picture. I believe it is a sunroom or breakfast room. Of course everything else is just so lovely.

  28. These photos are just brilliant once again, and you can share all of the Bunny garden, home entries that you desire. Such a fascinating place and everything about it looks so welcoming and inviting and love how well manicured everything is. Puts my home and garden to such such shame~
