More from Biltmore House and Gardens

If you missed my first post showing some of the gorgeous Poinsettias in the Indoor Conservatory at the Biltmore House near Asheville, TN, click HERE . Today I will show you more of the beauty from Biltmore... Above is a picture of the house (which has 34 bedrooms ---yipes)---and below are more from the indoor gardens.

Christmas Cactus

Love these little fuzzy worms; Anyone know this one's name?

Here's a picture of some of the gardens.. There were rooms and rooms and rooms which looked like this.. AWESOME!!!

Beautiful, isn't it??? I have had one of these before--but cannot remember its name.. Do you know????

Another beauty; There were several of these cactus-like plants around, but it was hard to get a good photograph looking up toward the light.

Finally, here is another Poinsettia tree... I love seeing the different colors together.

Visiting these beautiful gardens was so special for us --and made the beginning of the Christmas season such a joy. Hope you get a chance to visit the Biltmore House sometime...

Hope you had a great weekend. We certainly did ---and are enjoying all of our Christmas decorations here at home--inside and out. I am very excited since I hope to see two of my sons and some of the grandloves during Christmas this year... YEAH RAH!!!

Here's a picture of our "BIG" snow yesterday... It snowed here all day long and was so pretty to watch --but it just blew around in the air, and the most we got could be called a 'dusting'..... I did enjoy it though --as little as it was!
