On July 30, 2012, George and I made another summer trip to Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina... We went specifically to see the SUNFLOWERS --which we did see (and I featured them on my blog header all during August). What I never did do is share what else we did and saw on that day while we were there...
As I say everytime I do a Biltmore post, there are new and different things to see there EVERY month.. On this particular trip, we enjoyed the sunflowers, the walled garden, the Italian garden, and we did something we had never done before. We hiked to the Diana statue ---above the main entrance to the Biltmore House.. What a fabulous place for photos... I'm surprised we hadn't been up there before. There's just so much to see and do at Biltmore.
Here are some of the photos we took that day. Be sure to click on them for enlargements. The picture above was taken near the Diana statue --above the main house at Biltmore. Isn't that a great view?
Please pay attention to this note since I don't want you to worry about us. We are taking a long blog break (like some of my friends have done) ---and maybe we can catch up on life a little while we are 'off'.... Even though we won't be blogging at all until October 1st, we may be doing a few things on Facebook. SO---if you are on Facebook, you might want to keep up with us. I hope and pray that each of you have a great September. We certainly plan to!!!!! We'll see you on OCTOBER 1st.
Hugs to all, and have a tremendous month!!!
