Biltmore’s Walled Garden

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

My Beautiful Bride and I have season passes to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, and we try to visit the estate several times a year. Although we have gone into the house several times, we usually go to visit the conservatory and the gardens.

The Walled Garden is the centerpiece of the gardens at Biltmore. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, as were all the gardens at Biltmore. Frederick Law Olmsted is often considered America’s foremost landscape architect.

The Walled Garden is usually the second area we visit (after the Conservatory) on each trip to Biltmore. This post show a typical Spring visit to the Walled Garden. All these photos were taken in April, 2013.

The Walled Garden features a seasonal rotation of blossoms. A long arbor covered with grape vines runs down the center of the garden.

Openings in the arbor provide a pretty frame for the tulips.

Over 50,000 tulips (and 14,000) daffodils are planted in the garden each Spring, making a beautiful display.

I was fortunate to find another type of beauty in a different section of the garden.

    There is probably nothing I appreciate anymore than when we bought season’s passes to Biltmore… Going there often is just so incredible since different plants/flowers are blooming with each passing season… I absolutely LOVE that place. Love you too, my Sweetheart!

    Great picture of the last beauty there. What a smile, so lovely.

    So much beauty in one area, I wish we had one close to us. We had one for many years, but the owners finally passed on, and you know kids, they didn’t have an interest in keeping it up and going. I need to research that, and see what became of the old gardens.
    Thanks for sharing such wonderful beauty.
