We had a great two days in Asheville, NC. Our first stop was the Biltmore Estate. The tour through the house was amazing. The drive up to the home was beautiful and the gardens, greenhouse, and plant varieties were spectacular! Fields of sunflowers, rose gardens, wisteria canopies, succulents in abundance, and beautiful water gardens… borders of perennials… I was on a visual overload!!! We stayed at an old beautiful hotel “The Grove Park Inn”… historical and lovely. The small town is nestled in the Smokey Mountains filled with wonderful restaurants and shops. A perfect weekend getaway.
