North Carolina Vacation – Day 3 of 9 (Biltmore Estates: Walled Garden and Conservatory)

As I wrote in my previous blog post, we spent Days 3 and 4 (May 13 and May 14) at Biltmore Estates in Asheville NC. After admiring Biltmore House and the Library and South Terraces, we walked through the Shrub Garden to the Walled Garden and Conservatory.  The Walled Garden is a four-acre formal garden featuring flowerbeds of seasonal color.  A Rose Garden is showcased in the lower half of the Walled Garden, with the glass-roofed Conservatory as a backdrop.
