Spotlight: Gorgeous Gardens and Grounds

With each change of season, we’re reminded of the beauty of our region. The transformation of the landscape is a luxury unique to New England and one of the reasons we love to live here. Today, we’re thankful for the April showers that give these homes their gorgeous gardens, grounds and of course, May flowers.
