Laurel Rimmer, Assistant Director of Wave Hill’s Public Programs, checks on the state of the gardens post-Hurricane Sandy.
Hurricane Sandy descended upon Wave Hill and swept the autumn away, along with our electricity and a few damaged trees. Miraculously we escaped with remarkably little damage compared to other parts of the tri-state area. Here are a few photos from before the storm that we didn’t get a chance to post, and some images from after the storm. More to follow later in the week . . .
The calm before the storm—in the Flower Garden.
On the left, a shot of the Pergola, with storm-damaged plants cleared out for the winter. This makes a striking contrast with the same spot back in July. On the right, imagine the sound of a chainsaw removing a damaged limb from our old sugar maple…Wave Hill sustained little damage during the Hurricane, and staff worked hard to quickly clear away any hanging or fallen limbs.
