The ponds of the italian garden had less in it than in August, but was still very pretty.
I was surprised to find iris blooming. I thought they usually bloomed in May, not in October!
The walled garden is always spectacular. I guess the dead of winter is about the only time there isn't much growing there but then the hot houses are pretty. The mums were just beautiful!
This is my mother holding my Rebel...my sick Rebel. As you know, my new Canon 50D was stolen six weeks after I got it, so I have been using my old original Rebel that I have had for five years. Well, while in the garden, it quit working!!! Error 99.....I guess it needs to be serviced! I did not have my point and shoot with me, but luckily, I had encouraged my mom to take hers so I used it. I think it is time to take the plunge and buy the new Canon 7D!!!
Yes, the oval lattice again....it is pretty in every season!
This bridge is pictured in some of the original photos of the construction of the mansion.
I hope you enjoyed this visit to the Biltmore Estate.
