It seems as if Betsy and I make it to the Conservatory every time we visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.  No matter what the season, the conservatory always seems to have beautiful plants in bloom.

Things were no different the week of Thanksgiving, when we once again got carried away among all the beautiful blossoms.

I wish I could tell you that I knew the names of all of these beauties, but I don’t.  I only hope that you enjoy these blossoms as much as we did.

    Not being an authority on flowers, but having lived in Papua New Guinea, I am sure that these magnificent blooms are orchids of various varities.
    My mother in Young has one blooming which is exactly like the second yellow/green one.
    I presume that these are all growing in “hot house” conditions at Biltmore????
    PS: Want any rain – I can send buckets of it from “sunny” (ha ha) sub-tropical Brisbane!!!!
