Wave Hill

Wave Hill is a 28acre garden & cultural centre in the Bronx.
Originally built as a 'country home' by jurist William Lewis Morris in 1843 the property passed through a number of owners 
before being given to the City of New York by the Perkins-Freeman family in 1960.
Our selection of images starts with general views of the grounds with glimpses of the adjacent Hudson River and The Palisades beyond.
Next we have one of the prettiest aquatic plantings we have come across - keep an eye out for the frogs.
Following are some flowers and strange and wondrous plants on show - some names are included if you wish to pursue further research.
There is also an Art Gallery in the grounds and the three 'exuberant' birdhouses by Joan Bankempen are in the grounds of the gallery.
The artist hopes that bluebirds, swallows and titmice from the gardens will use them as homes.
