Another trip to Biltmore estate to specifically see the roses happened last week. Friend and neighbor Elaine and I set out to see the roses as they are blooming up a storm. Elaine is a flower nerd. I don’t think she would mind me writing that. She knows EVERYTHING there is to know about flowers. If I have a question all I have to do is ask her and she usually knows the answer. So she is the perfect person to go see #BiltmoreBlooms with.
Our all time favorite was the Like No Other rose which is not currently available to the public but I am sure it will be eventually because it is amazing. Just look at these blooms all on the same plants.
Of course all of the roses are stunning and the day we went were able to see some that were in full bloom as well as some that were post bloom and pre bloom. The gardeners have been working hard to maintain the gardens and it shows.
I know I always sing the praises of Biltmore but hey – it is one of my favorite places to go anytime of the year.
Tell me – are you a flower lover ? I have tried to plant a few perennials this year but the jury is still out if I can keep the critters away from them. What is your favorite flower?
