Just some Pretty Flowers from the Biltmore Conservatory

Something New:  A little TRAIN display in the Conservatory!!   How Special!
Hello Blog Friends,   The last trip that George and I took was to Biltmore House and Gardens on May 5,  2019.... We were there to see the Spring flowers --mainly the Azaleas.   BUT--since I had my Cardioversion (shocking the heart) on April 23, we were late this year getting there.  However, anytime of year that one goes to Biltmore,  he/she cannot go wrong when visiting the Conservatory.

So--I'll share with you a bunch of beautiful flowers and greenery that we found that day....   I love COLORS  --so today,  just sit back and take in all of the beauty.  Biltmore does a fabulous job of grouping plants together to give a great appearance.... Hope you enjoy all of the colors ---and of course, my favorite,  the ORCHIDS.





















































Hope you enjoyed seeing so many gorgeous flowers/plants and SO many pretty colors which blend together...   I took all of these pictures with my iPhone --and am pleased with the result.   Sometimes my Canon (which I love) is just too heavy to carry now.

If you ever visit Biltmore (during any season),  do NOT miss seeing the Conservatory!!!!!

Have a great week...   Thanks again for thinking about me.  I am doing well --and my heart is still beating in NORMAL RHYTHM.... Yeah!!!!

Hugs,

Iphones really take nice pictures don't they and it is something you most often have with you. Great invention. I don't have cell service here but wouldn't mind one just for the quick camera.
I think my favorite flowers these days are the orchids.

Wow! Each picture is so stunning! I love the little train. And I have never seen an iris like this frilly purple and white one. It is so unusual.

Hi there Betsy, I just loved all these pictures of the bright and colorful flowers! You said if we go there to be sure and see the Conservatory.....well--they would probably have to drag ME OUT OF the Conservatory, ha ha LOL!! I'd just want to stay there all day. Hope you're feeling better and recovering!

Hello again , Betsy.

Hope you are feeling much better now.

I love all those flowers. It's nice that they have a place and people to take care of them. I would love to plant them but just don't have the space and time
