By: Danielle Goulet ~ It has been a long winter, but we finally can feel the first signs of springtime approaching. Here at The Yankee Inn we would love to help you plan a beautiful spring vacation to the Berkshires, and experience this magical season. One great way to enjoy spring in the Berkshires is by visiting the breath-taking sights at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens. The Berkshire Botanical Gardens, located in Stockbridge, MA, has a rich history, and has been built and expanded over the years from the generosity of the local community. Each new season the gardens offer visitors new displays, events, and educational experiences. Don’t miss out on their upcoming event: The 37th annual Plant Sale, on May 9th, 2014 through May 10th, 2014, for an opportunity to find the perfect addition to your own garden, or maybe some inspiration to create a new garden. The Garden Cafe will be open, serving delicious treats donated from local vendors within the Berkshires.
