Biltmore Estate

We headed over to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville today. The Biltmore is the closest thing we have here in the U.S. to any of the big castles or palaces in Europe. Walking the grounds, it felt like Herrenchiemsee or Versailles. We had a really nice time in the mansion, but since no photos were allowed, I have no pictures to share from inside the house. However, in the greenhouse, I shot away, getting lots of orchids and other cool succulents. We finished off the afternoon with lunch at an excellent Irish pub, a pub with over 40 draught beers on tap!

Beautiful flowers. I hope you enjoyed the trip. I would love to visit there, but haven't made it yet.
