Tulips and Azaleas from Biltmore House and Gardens, Asheville, North Carolina, April 17, 2018

Us  at Biltmore enjoying the TULIPS 
Dear Friends,   Can you believe that it is ALMOST May????   Time is flying by ---but now,  maybe we will all have some warm weather, lots of sunshine  --and finally,  some SPRING!!!!!! April was a COLD month for us  (colder than Feb.)---and many of our plants have suffered so far...  They are waiting for some 'real' Spring also!!!!

On April 17, 2018  we drove to Biltmore to see their Tulip collection...    WOW---did we ever get there at a perfect time...   Even many of the Azaleas were blooming...   SO today I hope this post will make you SMILE.....  Sit back and enjoy the beauty!!!

BILTMORE HOUSE AND GARDENS,  Asheville, NC  --4/17/18
Finally,   I'll include one of George's fantastic pictures which he took while we were standing in the Walled Garden --looking toward the Biltmore House in the distance.... We were definitely there on a gorgeous Spring Day,  and enjoyed every minute of our day there!

Hope you have an awesome day and week ahead....  I think/hope that we are going to finally get some warm weather here --and maybe,  I can get the deck furniture out of the basement and get it cleaned up!!!!   YEAH!!!

Hugs,
