Beauty Is In The Eye!

The Conservatory at Biltmore yielded quite a few beautiful, beautiful images. This is one of the gorgeous Orange Orchids blooming inside the Conversatory when I visited earlier in August. There were many beautiful orchids, but this one is my favorite. I love the orange orchid with its deep red center. If you live within 500 miles of the Biltmore Estate located in Asheville, North Carolina, I urge you to visit just once. That's all it takes. And then you'll wish to return and soon. And as an added bonus there are several entrances to the Blue Ridge Parkway on the south and east side of Asheville. Within an hour or two you'll be viewing beautiful mountain vistas. I would love to see the Fall colors along the drive I took to Craggy Gardens along the Parkway. Perhaps some day. Stay safe tonight New Englanders. ENJOY!


  1. ...gorgeous color, Carol! It's been several years since I've been to the Biltmore. We need to go back!

  2. I love that color, too - so vibrant. Been off-line for a bit to enjoy the end of summer to the fullest. Have a wonderful long weekend, Carol.
