The Spectacular Laurels of Biltmore
In late May, the approach road at Biltmore Estate is alive with large Mountain Laurel in magenta, pink, and white. With many of the showy shrubs being nearly a hundred years old, you won’t find a better display anywhere in the mountains. They were planted by Fredrick Law Olmsted, who designed all the landscaping at this historic Vanderbilt estate. But you’ll need to hurry. In a week or so, they will be gone.
Of course, a visit to Biltmore in Asheville is never complete without a drive around the entire estate, and a stop at the glorious Biltmore Gardens.
I can’t think of a more peaceful way to spend a late Spring afternoon…
