  • In Garden Visit, Lindsey shows us around photographer Maria Robledo and artist Holton Rower’s lush Brooklyn Heights, New York, yard, which she helped design. It’s most appreciated by resident rabbit, Cornelius, Maria’s famous bunny (whose antics she chronicles on her Instagram feed @MariaRobledo).
  • The all-time most memorable Gardenista Before and After story? The tale of Grey Gardens and Jackie Onassis’s relatives Big and Little Edie Beale, subject of a famous documentary (as well as a movie and Broadway play). See the estate’s resurrection under of ownership of star journalists Ben Bradlee, who died this week at 93, and Sally Quinn.
  • “I like to punctuate a garden bed with velvety darkness,” says Michelle. “Nothing cuts the sweetness faster than a black flower.” Her recommendation? 10 Film Noir Flowers, including these hairy-stemmed black peony poppies.
