Spring has sprung! For us here in the North East, this seasonal arrival signifies a definitive shift in gears; skiers pack up their skis, snowbirds begin to flock back from their winter retreats and there is an almost tangible sensation of revitalization in the air. As we begin to dust off our lawn furniture, with a keen eye on the warmer days to come, we thought you’d enjoy four of our listings with gardens that provide the perfect settings to savor nature on a breezy afternoon.
