The Biltmore. Again.
I may be trying to see how many times I can write about The Biltmore in one year. I keep telling my readers that there is something new to see every time we visit.
Chris and I did a quick visit last weekend on our way to other places and I am so glad we did.
It was early, crowded and hot. But still, it was so worth the time and effort.
We always park in the Park and Walk lot because it is so easy to walk to the house and gardens from there. Honestly it only takes about 5 minutes and we need all the exercise we can get these days.
I wanted one last look at the Chihuly glass sculptures and we walked though the gardens and into the conservatory so we were able to see all the ones that I really wanted to see. They were still as beautiful as ever. The place was super crowded already as it was the last weekend of the exhibit and everyone else wanted to see it before it left town.
Not only were the sculptures in full beauty the rest of the gardens were in the process of being rotated. A lot of the beauty of The Biltmore is in the landscaping and the natural surroundings and this visit did not disappoint.
Mums were beginning to make their appearance.
Some of the roses in the rose garden were still blooming.
And the other flowers were showing off their vibrant colors as well as many of the trees and shrubs.
While the trees have not really started changing colors until this week the rest of the landscaping in the gardens put on its own show. And what a show it was.
There are so many things to love about this place. Even without special exhibits there is so much to see and enjoy and I never tire of visiting. Even when it is hot and crowded.
Thanks for indulging me with one more post about the gardens and the Chihuly exhibit. If you see a favorite picture in this post let me know which one it is. All comments this month mean a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a Cause – UMCOR Hurricane Florence Recovery.
