|Beautiful Day for a WALK at the Biltmore House and Gardens, Asheville, NC, 5/7/19|
Hello Blog Friends, Last Monday I showed you the gorgeous blooms inside of the Conservatory at Biltmore. Today I invite you to take a walk with us from the conservatory to the lake and back... We took pictures along the way of all of the pretty blooms --among other things.... Sit back and get some exercise while sitting at home!!!!!!
|Love the blooms in this bush|
|Here's a close-up of these fuzzy white blooms; Anyone know what the name of this one is??? I think I used to know but can't remember!|
|Love the RED Rhododendron Blooms|
|This is a Dawn REDWOOD tree. As many times as I've been at Biltmore and on this path, I don't think I've ever seen this one before....Who needs to go to California? We have our own Redwood here!!!!!! ha|
|Most of the AZALEAS were gone --but we did get to see some beauties still blooming.|
|Such a beautiful walk on a pretty Spring Day|
|Sometimes when we walk, we forget to LOOK UP.... The grounds of Biltmore have many old (and HUGE) trees... I couldn't even get all of this big Evergreen Tree in my picture.... So amazing!|
|George also enjoyed this walk.... Don't you love the little bridge?|
|Looky there!!!!!! They even have a pretty little cascade JUST for us!!!!!!|
|Lily of the Valley blooming at Biltmore; I love this plant since my mother used to have some in her yard. I tried to grow some one year to no avail.|
|Azaleas blooming along the lake; So pretty!!|
|It was so peaceful walking beside the lake. See the bridge in the background?|
|Little IRISES blooming along the water!!! |
|Heading back, I snapped this shot of NEW Spring GROWTH....Look at the tiny little pinecones being formed!!! |
|Love the color of these pretty flowers. |
|One more picture of the Azaleas still in bloom|
|We just HAD to stop and pull out the tripod for a picture of us together on this walk..|
Hope you enjoyed today's walk in Biltmore... We hope to get back there in August and check out more of the Summer Blooms.
Have an awesome week, my Friends. AND--get outside and do some walking!!!!! Not only is it healthy, you will feel better for doing it.
