Poinsettias at the Biltmore

Welcome to December,  the month to celebrate Christmas,  the birth of Christ.  George and I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.  We hope you will celebrate with us ALL month...

Besides visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell,  our Thanksgiving trip consisted of a day at the Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, NC.  Wow--what an incredible place!!!  I'll talk much more about the Biltmore in future blog posts,  but today I'm sharing with you some pictures we took while we were touring the indoor gardens.

I love Poinsettias---and we saw some beautiful ones while at Biltmore.  Today I will share some of them with you...  Above is a picture a lovely couple offered to take of us.   Below are more.

Pink Poinsettia

White Poinsettia

Red Poinsettia (always a favorite of mine-since I love Christmas REDS)

More Pinks

Multi-colored Poinsettias;  SO beautiful!!!!

Finally,  here is a Poinsettia tree..    All of these displays in these indoor gardens were fabulous...  More to come!!!!!


P.S. We have had TONS of rain here the past couple of days!!!!  Anyone got a boat we can use?????? ha ha
