Where we live, our neighborhood has a garden club as well as an association for its residents ( which date back to the 1930's). While we club members no longer wear white gloves as we sip tea, we do try to go once a year as a group on a field trip to visit a beautiful spot that features special horticulture.
This year Wave Hill was our destination and we had a perfect day to head south to the Bronx. By late morning, when we arrived, it was in the 60's, sunny and glorious. The place itself has many amazing attributes including vistas overlooking the Hudson River, century old specimen trees and imaginative plantings in both sun and shade as well as a renowned collection of alpine plants.
We happily roamed this bucolic setting while listening to our informative guides. It is a very special garden to explore and enjoy.
