Come and Take a Walk with Us

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.

Hugs,
