Flower Carpet

The last two weeks of August, at the Biltmore Estate they have a Flower Carpet out from the library. I did not get to go last year, so I wanted to make sure I was able to see it this year. The overall pattern is taken from the Fleur d lis on the columns.

I sneaked a photo from the window in the house with my new Canon Elph as you can see the pattern much better from higher up.
Don't worry, I have more photos to share....even the walled garden was lovely, even in August. August in the south isn't always the kindest month, for those you you that don't live here.

What lovely pix! You'd think since one of my great great great whatever grandmother was born on the estate before it became an 'estate', that I would go see this place. But I haven't yet. I guess it'll be on my list of things to see, as soon as I'm free to travel again! Thanks for sharing!!!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to look out your window every day and have this view!!!!
