I always look forward to going to Biltmore in the spring to see all of the spring flowers. two years ago we went just to walk around on Easter and loved it. Last year – the grounds were closed. This year we decided to go visit on Easter again and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
It was one of those magical days. We watched the live stream of the Easter Sunrise Service at Pretty Place, had a nice breakfast and got going early so we could get to the estate before it got too crowded.
The tulips are not all in full bloom yet which I am sure is planned . They have this whole gardening thing down at Biltmore as you can imagine. What was blooming was fabulous.
We always have to take a selfie in front of the house – masks down for this one.
Maybe my favorite picture of the day was this dandelion I spied growing in the cracks of a wall under an arbor. There is room for everything in nature – even weeds.
Are spring flowers blooming where you live? I would love to hear what is popping out in your area so leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for Ohio Guidestone.

It’s all so beautiful.
One of my favorite places to visit!
Love the gardens at the Biltmore and would love to see the tulips blooming. So many colors and such a sign of Spring. I miss all the traditional Spring blooms. We don’t get any of that.
Beautiful pictures. Our daffodils are blooming and trees are in bud.
Gorgeous! I love spring flowers, especially tulips. My garden looks very colourful right now. BUt, Tulips don´t do well here as the sun is too hot.
Oh, this is beautiful. I would love these gardens. My tulips are up, buds forming. With the rain this week and temps in the 60s and 70s, they should bloom within the next few weeks. Hopefully we won’t get snow. But anything is possible in Minnesota in April.
The tulips are lovely. Nature at her best,
I like the dandelion. Like the formal garden too…What’s blooming here: Daffodils have peaked; some people do plant tulips to fill the time before the iris starts. Prunus have bloomed and faded. I have ground-ivy, violets, let some chickweed bloom, speedwell, bloodroot, and a fantastic little peach tree that came up from seed on a steep bank. It keeps falling over and picking itself up again, and bearing so many little hard sweet peaches it looks likely to break down again. It’s a very determined tree.
Spring blooms make us happy, no matter where they are! Yes, our daffodils and hyacinths are all in bloom, but no tulips yet.
