This gracious garden never fails to revive my spirit. Although only 10 miles or so north of my home on the Upper West Side, Wave Hill feels like another world.
The vistas are large and there’s nothing like the mighty Hudson River in the background to offer the visitor a feeling of unlimited possibility.
Within this expansive garden are smaller “rooms.” The ones that caught my eye today were the herb and alpine gardens, most particularly the plants growing out of their enclosing stone walls.
What survivors! How do they manage to thrive with so few resources? What an inspiration for a way of living.
