Summer time at Biltmore…
It’s nice to see the canopy at the side of the Biltmore house covers with Trumpet vines, a great shade to sit and relax in a hot summer day. The canopy is also covered with the Chinese Wisteria plants that produce beautiful purple flowers in late April and early May, I’m sure it’d be a sight to see.
More Trumpet vines canopy along the walkway to the garden area.
A beautiful and relaxing place to sit and read a book, or just hanging around.
I was surprised to see that they removed the tulips and replaced them with summer flowers, now I’m looking forward to seeing the Autumn flowers as well.
If you don’t have a big space for a fish pond, this is a great idea, I even saw several tiny Minnows (panoy) swimming around, they help take care of the mosquitoes problem.
I think the Rose garden might have been prettiest in May, but there are still some beautiful roses left, and they’ll continue to bloom until late fall.
This is a space saving technique to train the rose bushes to climb along the wire fence.
Same with Apple trees, the branches spread out along the wire fence. I kind of like the idea, but not sure if this is something that I would want to try.
An ice cream treat for a hot summer day.
Lee had a visitor while she was there, I’m not sure if her butterfly t-shirt attracted the butterfly but it stayed with her for a brief moment then flew away.
The mountainous scenery of Ashville North Carolina made me think of Laos.
This was taken right before we left, I wanted to go down to visit the grape farm but couldn’t find my way there. This is definitely a must for me to go back and visit, and maybe I’ll get to tour the Winery next time.
