More amazing photos of some incredibly beautiful flowers and grounds. Your hubby is very good with a camera! You're not so bad yourself! :D Don't worry about visits...life has a way of interrupting Blogland every now and again.

I have enjoyed all of your Biltmore posts. You have captured some beautiful photos. I have been there once in the late spring and once at Christmastime. Loved it both times. I also enjoy shopping around Asheville. It's such a neat city.

We visited the Biltmore estate for the first time last summer and it was beautiful! Being so close by and able to see it in all of it's springtime glory must be spectacular! Thanks for taking us along through your great photos!

I have never been to the Biltmore Estate before, one day I hope too. It looks so pretty! You photo's turned out great and really captured the moment.
I have been really busy too, packing for our move, I am trying to visit as much as I can, but its been hard since all my time has been spent packing and spring cleaning.
Have a wonderful week,
Hugs Elizabeth

Love the pics! Especially the wisteria, red bud trees, and the dogwoods! Beautiful! I can see the beginnings of the blossoms forming on my wisteria. This will be the first year that it has bloomed. When I planted it, it was a bare stick about 8 inches tall. Very excited!

Hello Diane~I've missed my visits, but look forward to catching up.
So, I poured myself a cup of tea and read a spell.
What beautiful photos!
I'm so excited to see spring blooms popping up. I look forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking/cooking in between.
Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
It's definitely invigorating.

Stroll by for a visit, your company will be nice.

Sweet wishes,

P.S. Diane, I read about your suggestion to Mona... where do you find the padded undies for bike riding? I've seen the Spandex bike shorts with padding, but there's not enough "Spand" for me, lol. I'll save the Lycra for after I've gotten a few miles under my bottom.

Sweet wishes,


Awesome photos! I need a camera like yours!
Thank you for the birthday wishes.
Life does get a little "good crazy"

Oh gorgeous photos, I sooo want to see Biltmore in person one day!
Thanks for sharing!

Janet said...

Beautiful photos!! Biltmore Estate looks like a fabulous place to visit.

Hi Diane, those spring flowers are amazing...I dont even know if we have them here. The problem we have is, flowers bloom everyday as there are no seasons..just summer 365 days a year, so sometimes, we tend to take it for granted. Happy weekend.

I can imagine strolling down different paths while visiting the Biltmore Estate. Your photos captured gorgeous flowers. Thanks for sharing!

With all of your beautiful photos, I think you should consider creating your own coffee table book. (I would buy it and I drink only tea.)

Seriously, your photographic work is amazing.
