I just scrolled down and read your earlier post. How beautiful this estate is! Just wonderful. You do live in a very beautiful area. Lucky you!

Janet said...

I think I'd prefer horseback although the Segue-way would be fun, too.

Can you imagine having all that as your home!!! It's just incredible!

Diane - What a lovely posting with pictures of the Biltmore. Yes - it is one of our favorite places also! I think we have done every tour - at least twice. Love the restaurants - our favorite is the Arbor Grill.

Thanks for coming to see me - was so great to hear from you and learn that we were both at the Biltmore about the same time. My pictures wil hit the blog in a few days!

Good luck in the contest also!

A lovely estate! I have read about the Biltmore and have thought if I travel East I will want to stop and see the gardens. My Mother-in-law said it was fantastic. Your photos in this post and the earlier one do show how huge it is. I would love to horseback ride....
Did you see any butterflies or bees? Seems when ever I go to public gardens anymore i seldom see bees or butterflies. I think it is very strange not see bugs enjoying the flowers.
Lovely photographs,
Sherry

The top picture is a stunning view of the Estate. My husband and I almost visited Biltmore when we were vacationing in Blowing Rock, then coming down to Asheville..., but almost doesn't really count, doesn't it!

Oh, how lovely, and I can only imagine the comfort of walking and strolling through such a marvelous estate. I do envy you.
