The Greenhouse at Biltmore Estate

I shared a post about my trip to the Biltmore Estate in April and briefly mentioned the greenhouse.
The plants and flowers were beautiful and so I thought I would share a few more photos with you.
I really liked this area and the hanging pots above the bench...photo op anyone?
Beautiful orchids
Stunning colors
And simple beauty
The many shades of white
Dazzling
Spring in all it's glory
So many varieties 
 Beauty in leaves of many colors
Unusual 
Brilliant
Vibrant!

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Wow, wow, wow! The green house is amazing at Biltmore, and your photos turned out great, Linda! The orchids are amazing and look almost too perfect to be real:) I bet everything smelled so good, too.

The greenhouse and the flowers are just stunning! Such vibrant colors. I am wishing I had a gorgeous yard but at this point I don't. When we finish the inside if the house then it's on to the outside! Can't wait

This made my day. I have been unable to enjoy the beauty of nature as have had sciatica and unable to move much. Having physical therapy and meds and pray it helps after 3 weeks suffering. You brought beauty to me.

You and George and Betsy are making me want to visit the Biltmore so badly! Oooohhhhhh.....gorgeous displays of lovely flowers and plants! I am so glad your daughter is A - Ok! I am so careful driving these days, people are everywhere and here in Denver as well as Boulder bicyclists are all over the place! You need to keep sharp eyes peeled for these folks! They do have some bike lanes etc. and I am sure where Ashley lives they do too, but these dreamers driving.....Argh.....I am older and wiser and am always very careful! I pray when I drive and I think I have some extra guidance too! Glad she is fine and you are too! Hurts a mother's heart when things happen to our kiddos! They are always our babies!
Your trip was just fantastic. I wish I were closer. I would join you!. Thanks for the tour. Hugs!

Rebecca said...

Your pictures of these flowers are AMAZING! I haven't been to the Biltmore for a long, long time....
