This past weekend we took a little picnic to the Biltmore Estate. I forgot to take pictures of the actual picnic, but I did get some shots of the lovely setting.
With the back side of the Biltmore House in the background we had our picnic on the edge of a small lake.
It is a favorite spot of ours at the Biltmore Estate. The lake usually has geese and or ducks swimming lazily around.
After the picnic we went to the azalea gardens at Biltmore Estate. The azaleas were just past their peak in blooming, but still very pretty.
From there, we walked up to the walled garden area of Biltmore. You can see the top of the house in the picture below, the rest of the house is hidden by the trees.
The walled garden was filled with irises blooming, peonies and beautiful shrubs.
After the walled garden we walked through the greenhouse.
It was a wonderful day. Have you gone on a picnic yet this spring?
