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.

Great captures Beth...espcially love the one with the water and the bridge. I"ll be back more frequently soon!
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

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
