Spring, Wherefore Art Thou?

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

I admit it: I’m tired of the cold, I’m tired of gray skies and I’m tired of rain. I want to see blue skies and some color in the ground. I want to see scenes like these.

I wish I could say these beauties were from our yard, but they’re not. One thing My Beautiful Bride and I try to do each Spring is get to Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina, to enjoy the spring flowers in the Walled Garden.  These pictures are from a visit we made a couple of years ago.



I love the way they plant their flowers — everything looks just right when they are all in bloom.

And as pretty as the blossoms are up close, the entire garden is a thing of beauty when seen at a distance from an overlook on the grounds.

All I can say is . . . COME ON SPRING!!!

    I can’t decide which I like better.The flowers up close or the whole garden. Guess I don’t have to pick.I like them all.

    These are gorgeous! The first one is my favorite. Good thing you can just go to Biltmore whenever winter gets the best of you. How many hours of a drive is it
