She is so beautiful. Too bad she never gets to turn around and enjoy the mountain view.
Another one of my favorites has a secret hiding behind her.
On the other side stands a sweet cherub. The side of the house is in the background.
Under the trellis, always in the shade.
One of the many fountains...this one also under the trellis.
One of the three turtle fountains along the wall.
And this sweet cherub shining so white in the glaring sun.
The weather was perfect on the day of our visit. The old saying rings true. If God is not a Tarheel, why is the sky Carolina blue? The estate is about 25 miles from our town, an easy drive for unbelievable beauty. If you are ever in the Asheville area, please spend at least one day at the Biltmore Estate.
Alas, much of our Nation has not seen a Carolina blue sky in recent days. More tornadoes have taken even more lives and made such a path of destruction we cannot comprehend even with the videos and photographs. Our thoughts are with all of them.
