Everything is Coming up PURPLE

Welcome to April!!!!!  I cannot believe that time is marching by SO fast...

Today's photo was another one (along with my header this month) taken on our latest trip to Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville,  North Carolina.

Biltmore does SUCH a great job with all of their seasonal gardens.. We try to get there 3-4 times a year to see different flowers in bloom during each season.  This time,  we saw lots of Daffodils,  Hyacinths,  Crocuses,  Pansies and Tulips blooming in the walled garden. We'll go back soon to see the Azaleas and more Tulips.

I loved the way they put all of the purples together.. I'm not sure I have ever seen prettier hyacinths.

Have an awesome month!

Hugs,

Sounds like you are once again season ticket holders to the Biltmore. You really get your money's worth and we get our eye's worth. Love that shade of blue.
