    I remember reading about this home and the gardens when it was on the market a few years back. The beauty and magnificence is indescribable. I appreciate your post sharing the gardens in bloom.
    As I meandered these paths with you I wondered how one could dwell amongst all of this and then part with it. The views beyond the gardens are totally mesmerizing Lissy.
