The Gardens at The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina

During my trip to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville North, Carolina I took a nice walk around the Gardens. As much as I like the city, I love nature even more and walking around the Gardens was a true delight. The Gardens are beautiful and as with the rest of the estate they were well thought out by George W Vanderbilt.

The Gardens are divided into distinct areas with each area offering a different variety of plants and flowers. Each area gives you the feeling of entering another world.

This is the South Terrace area.
