Earlier this month Betsy and I visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. We go several times a year, and this time we hoped to be able to see the tulips in bloom.
As you can see from the picture above, our timing was just about perfect. There were tulips at the entrance to the estate, but we went on to the Conservatory and Walled Garden.
The Walled Garden is a formal ornamental garden. Part of the Walled Garden is a permanent rose garden, but plantings in the remainder of the garden are changed throughout the year.
After walking through the tulips, Betsy and I walked to a hill where we could look down on the Walled Garden. In this picture you can see the design of the garden. The flower beds on the other side of the arbor are mirror images of the beds on this side.
