When I visit the Biltmore I always take a lot of photographs. This last trip was no exception to that and I tried to capture a few pictures of things that may not be photographed as frequently as the beautiful exhibits.
These first pictures were taken in the Winter Garden which is the area that is seen almost immediately when entering the house. Normally visitors are not allowed to walk through this area but it was open and the traffic flow was routed through the area for this exhibit. The space is filled with plants and a beautiful fountain.
Looking up treated visitors to a lovely view even with the cloudy rainy day.
Orchids were everywhere and I captured just a few of the gorgeous blooms on display.
Some of the rooms are so beautifully appointed with furnishings. With so few crowds the day we visited it was easy to get some really great views of some of the areas.
I noticed some of the details that I probably have missed on previous visits. I realized most of these were service related — call buttons, telephones and dumbwaiters.
Finally the tea sets. There are always beautiful tea sets adorning the tables.
If you have been to The Biltmore estate in Asheville please tell me what your favorites are when you visit. There are so many things, aren’t there? Hard to pick just one. Of course the library is my absolute favorite. Comment for a Cause for PAWS.
