Biltmore Gardens

 No matter what time of year it is, there are always flowers blooming at the Biltmore Estate. In the Conservatory there you will find some of the most amazing plants and flowers you've ever seen. Even if you're not really into this sort of thing, I'd still recommend you peek in during your visit to the Biltmore Estate (see yesterday's post). I think you'll be surprised by the diversity and by the unreal beauty of the plants on display. The plants in the gardens outside the Conservatory are getting ready to put on quite a show this spring and summer. Over 50,000 tulips will bloom in April, followed by 1,000 azaleas and 2,300 roses in May. Click here for the "bloom schedule." While the 250 room Biltmore House is certainly spectacular, the gardens and the Conservatory cause a completely different sense of awe and wonder.
