The Sweetie and I headed up to Wave Hill in Riverdale yesterday and never did the Bronx look so enticing. I was aiming to photograph the early spring posies at this spectacular public garden overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades–and I did.
But what drew even louder “oohs” and “aahs” from me were the succulent plants in the greenhouse. I had seen this collection before and it’s always been impressive, but never did it look better–perhaps because I’m usually up there when the spring flowers or autumn vistas are so mind-boggling that there’s little room left to appreciate anything else. As you’ll see, I was so transported I forgot to write down a few of the complete names.
