Here in the Western North Carolina mountains last Friday was a beautiful, warm day that actually felt more like summer than spring. Weather like that beckons us to spend time outdoors. Mr. MT Nest and I decided on the spur of the moment to pay a late afternoon visit to the Azalea Garden at the Biltmore Estate. When we visited the Estate on April 1st, (Read about that visit HERE) the azaleas weren’t blooming and I have been wanting to return to enjoy the beautiful blooming azaleas. On Friday, we spent a couple of hours strolling the path through the Azalea Garden and the trail to the Bass Pond. Although the azaleas were a bit past their peak blooming season, the garden was still magnificent. It contains many varieties and colors of azaleas. Each is beautiful.
By the time we reached the Bass Pond, it was the golden hour. The sun on the water reflected like a glass surface. Geese were swimming lazily around the pond.
After our stroll, we had dinner at Cedric’s Tavern on the Estate, and then sat in the Antler Village Courtyard listening to live music. It was a wonderful way to begin our weekend. We always enjoy spending time on the Biltmore Estate and there is so much to do and enjoy there.
