There seems to a lot going on in Asheville. Some of the art looks a little sci-fi, or perhaps Egyptian. What a great idea for an art/garden tour.

Hello name mate! Thank you for pictures of greeneries. I love the fourth picture. I would love to relax in that wooden chair under the shade of a refreshing tree and of course enjoying the greenery.

Asheville looks like a fun place to visit! The sculptures are so unique, and I could sit in one of those Adirondack chairs for a while taking it all in. We were in Gainesville yesterday (on business) and passed by all of the museums and center for the arts...I was thinking..."I want to come up here one of these days when I have time to go in and browse for a while." My fave museums are those of natural history!
Great pics Diane!

Art is the garden isn't something I see here very often. I like the garden in the middle portion of the mosaic. Thanks for sharing.
