Trade Secrets Garden Tours 2015- Bunny Williams – John Roselli and Michael Trapp

“Bunny Williams’ and John Roselli’s longstanding love affair with their Falls Village home becomes abundantly clear after a stroll through the gardens.  John’s vegetable and cutting garden reflect his skills in the kitchen while Bunny’s eclectic aesthetic is evident in her entertaining spaces – from the greenhouse to the Greek temple-style pool house.  Together, the two have created a well-curated journey from the sunken formal garden to the wildflower-dense woodland, by way of heirloom apple trees and charming heritage-breed chickens.”

Again, I have been fortunate enough to have been to this property at least 4 times over the years for both Trade Secrets events and Garden Conservancy Days. This is a compilation of my journey through their gardens.

Michael Trapp’s Garden is an “Old World-style garden and reflects his renowned aesthetic and eye for detail.  Overlooking the Housatonic River, the intimate property has a distinctive French/Italian flavor with cobbled paths, terraced gardens, raised perennial beds and reflecting pools.”  Cornwall Bridge is a lovely spot to visit and watch the kayak races on the river or just to check out the Covered Bridge and grab some lunch.

  1. Thanks for the tour Robin. Simply stunning photographs of some beautiful spots on each property. Someday I hope to get there myself but in the meantime, you’ve given us a lovely tease.
