Celebrate the Lush Beauty of Spring

Post provided by guest contributing blogger, Stephanie Lloyd, Director of Marketing at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty in Nashville, Tennessee.

“I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.” -Ruth Stout, American author and gardener

Within the next week or so, cities throughout the world that are lucky enough to experience four true seasons will be in full bloom as spring will be well under way. We can’t agree more with Ruth Stout, famous for her “no-work” garden methods, that the best way to greet spring is in a garden.

Many locations throughout the Sotheby’s International Realty global network are famous for their gardens, and especially the special beauty found there during this delicate and expectant time of year. As such, we’ve collected five cities from around the world that are home to some exquisite displays of spring blossoms every year.

Nashville, Tennessee

Living in the World’s Top Cities for Music

Post provided by guest contributing blogger, Stephanie Lloyd, Director of Marketing at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty in Nashville, Tennessee.

A song can have a powerful impact – it lingers in the mind, it adds bounce to steps, it sets the tone. Influential music is often created by people who have dynamic, interesting lifestyles. Inspiration can come from bold architecture or comforting, idyllic landscapes or stark surroundings.

Just as there are many genres of music, there are many cities that play host to the musicians who are continuing tradition or who are on the edge of a powerful new sound. Here is a list of the top 10 cities for music from around the world.

Nashville, Tennessee, USA — While best known for country music, Nashville’s nickname as “The Music City” means it’s home to dozens of musicians in all genres. They come to Nashville to find, reclaim, or continue their careers. Nashville’s size is approachable with less than 750,000 residents, and is known for its picturesque scenery.
