OH---Those Gorgeous AZALEAS

NOTE:  This post was done before our vacation --and is not pictures from this past week.  As you know,  we have season's passes to Biltmore --so we try to go there once every month or so.  These pictures were taken on 4/14/11 ---and when we went back on 5/7/11,  things were very different.

SO---here are some pictures from our trip (4/14/11) to the Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina.  IF you missed the first post from that trip,  click HERE.  As you can imagine,  I have many more Biltmore pictures to share --from several of our visits!!!!!

Today I am featuring JUST Azaleas--since they were so pretty when we were there... No words are needed to describe these beauties!!!  SO--just sit back and enjoy!

Above is an interesting picture of the entire Biltmore House and Gardens.  Since we have a Geo-tracker which tracks where we've been and where we take pictures,  we got this neat  picture of the entire estate.  You may need to click on it to make it larger --so that you can see the entire place.

We have marked where things are --so that you'll be able to see where we've been.  In the Winter,  we spent most of the time inside the Conservatory.   On 4/11,  we visited the Walled Garden (where we saw mostly Tulips) and we hiked down to see the Azaleas.. We also walked on down to the bass pond and the waterfall... SO---there will be more pictures to come!!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!!
