Biltmore blooms









There are different blooms to see every time you go to the Biltmore. The azaleas were in prime time - the tulips were so dead. Guess they need to tell their security guards that. My mom did ask him what was in bloom. He said the tulips were. nope ...they were gone. very sad. very pretty!! enjoy!! We had a ball on our trip April 21-22. Beth ( :

Hello Beth, sounds like the guard does not know what is in bloom. He may not be a gardener. Beautiful flowers and lovely images. Glad you had a nice visit. Enjoy your day! Have a happy 4th of July!

We were also at Biltmore on April 22 of this year.and were disappointed we missed the tulips. The azaleas, however, were gorgeous. Thanks for the memories.

A fine post of these beautiful blossoms with one or two shots of other things. I especially liked the framed shot of the garden and house.

Hi Beth, Remember me? I haven't been blogging much lately---so am trying now to catch up a little... Love your Biltmore pictures--and recognize all of it... We were in Biltmore on June 23 (our anniversary)--but it was EXTREMELY hot that day there. We enjoyed going to Mt. Mitchell instead --where it was 63 degrees... Loved that!!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

Cove Point Lighthouse
I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :
