Wave Hill reminded me of the much larger Longwood Gardens in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a favorite place of mine to visit and decompress. The public gardens started out as many do, a private home. People can now enjoy an art workshop or weekend brunch. Check out some art exhibits in the adjacent villa and manor house. Tai Chi and sunset yoga classes make it very tempting to come back!
As I meandered through the grounds, I enjoyed examining and photographing the plants and butterflies as closely as possible. These photos are almost a rainbow, and reveal the expanse of colors manifested in many forms. This is a showcase of summer at its best!
