Eleanor Perenyi (January 4, 1918 – May 3, 2009)[1] was a gardener and author on gardening. She wrote Green Thoughts, a collection of essays based on her own experiences as a gardener. The book drew on her work on her husband’s castle (described in her 1946 publication More Was Lost). Green Thoughts was reviewed by Brooke Astor in The New York Times.[2]

Perenyi was given an award in literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1982.[3]
