Last Friday, we drove up to Asheville to see daughter in the UNC-Asheville Dance Concert. Dear husband took the day off so we had the whole afternoon to wander around the Biltmore Estate. It was a beautiful afternoon!
I'm usually very much against public Christmas decorations* before Thanksgiving, but I know that the Biltmore house has a lot of Christmas tours to do so they start early (the tours get really crowded in December)(Hint we got from someone who works there - go at about 4 pm. The day tourists are mostly done, but the Candlelight tours haven't started yet). Here, they have the outside Christmas tree up.
The greenhouse was beautiful as usual:
Wreath made of...
...epiphytes and succulents
The greenhouse roof
The orchids were beautiful:
Very large ferns
* I don't care if people decorate their own houses that early - I just don't care for it in stores.
