|George and Betsy at Biltmore on June 14, 2012|
Last June (2011), we took our big trip out west--so we didn't get to Biltmore to check out the summer flowers... This year, we decided to try it!! We left the house bright and early on June 14 ---and got stuck in a long-long-long traffic jam on I-40 near the TN/NC line.... There was nowhere to go except just SIT and be patient.... An 18-wheeler had turned over and our side of the interstate was closed.....
SO---needless to say, after losing over an hour and a half in traffic that day, we didn't have much of our day left to spend at Biltmore... BUT---we did make it there and enjoyed that quick trip!!!!! Luckily, we didn't have any trouble getting home that night ---and in fact, we took some of the prettiest sunset/sky pictures we've taken in a long time... IF you missed seeing those pictures, click HERE. You do not want to miss seeing that sunset. Seeing the flowers at Biltmore is nice, but OH ---that beautiful sunset!!!! The sunset made the day really worthwhile.
One reason to visit Biltmore in June is to see their huge ROSE COLLECTION. There are over 200 varieties of heirloom and hybrid roses.... As you can imagine, we enjoyed seeing all of their roses... BUT--there are other summer flowers blooming in June... So--today I'll show you a little of what we saw at Biltmore on June 14. Be sure to enlarge the photos for bigger copies.
Hope you enjoyed another installment from the beautiful Biltmore Home and Gardens....
Have a wonderful day.
