Biltmore in Bloom

Visited Biltmore twice before, but when I heard of a Flower Festival a third visit beckoned. The festival runs through May 27, 2021, and if you are able to visit, go, but, check online first for tickets as they go fast.


Biltmore was the home of George and Edith Vanderbilt. This 250 room castle was built in French Renaissance style in the 1890’s through the design efforts of Richard Morris Hunt and the landscape/garden creator Frederick Law Olmstead. There is much on the web regarding this estate. Read as much as possible prior to visit to ensure a rewarding visit. Arrive early, stay late, and if time allows visit Asheville or nearby Black Mountain..

That said, more pictures..

A waterfall of flowers greets visitors upon entrance.
