The Flowers of Biltmore Estate, Re-visited (Flower Power Series 2)

Remember when I said in my previous post that we have been to the Biltmore three times?

Well, every time we go, there are ALWAYS flowers, everywhere. So, this is part 2. They are just simply too beautiful not to go unnoticed by my creative spirit.

It takes about 8 minutes to get to the main house from the parking lot where you will see among others a fish and a lion standing guard. Inside the house, you can take a self guided tour with or without audio. I recommend taking the audio tour, for an extra fee, because it will give you a detailed explanation (and more) and walk you through the mansion’s different chambers. There are also guided tours available. However, photography is not allowed inside the main house.

But let’s backtrack a little bit, on the way to Asheville, on one of our rest stops, I spot a little patch of yellow flowers. Snap! Aren’t they just happy?

Then we move along to the Biltmore gardens once again where it is teeming with numerous blooms and plants. Such a varied display of floral opulence and grandeur, much like the house itself.

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
