Wave Hill in the Bronx is a very special garden. It's the kind of place where attention to detail - texture, form, colour - make it possible to focus almost anywhere and find a combination of beautifully composed plants.
These images are excerpted from an article by Melissa Ozawa that appears in March's edition of Martha Stewart Living. In it, Scott Canning, the Director of Horticulture at Wave Hill, explains how they do it.
I'm lucky to have met Scott, just once, at one of the Nuttley, New Jersey lunches...
These pictures make me itch to dig and to plant. And to go back out to Wave Hill. It's much faster now, from Harlem.
Stunning... pinks don't usually do it for me but those are wonderful.
