I've always wanted to see the tulip fields in the Netherlands during spring bloom. Domesticated tulips are lovely, but they don't exactly fit my 'working for a living' screen for planting.

But, I do love them regardless, and this is the first time we've seen them flowering at Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, NC, during the Festival of Flowers.


  1. They are beautiful aren't they? I haven't seen the flower fields at Biltmore. I always wanted to go to the Tulip Festival north of Seattle but it never fit our schedule when we lived there. The tulips were wonderful and lasted a long time because they were so fresh.

  2. Very nice Lisa, the various beds make pictures with the flowers. Beautiful.

  3. Beautiful! Spring is such a delicious time of year, it's worth the wait and the wailing. ;)

  4. Hello! I've just entered the blogging world myself and have happened upon yours. What an interesting and peaceful place you've created. I'll be sure and stop by regularly.

    I'm a PA gardener of flowers and perennials and anything else that's growing. I'm putting the finishing touches on a lovely greenhouse/potting shed my husband has just built for me. I hope to have photos up soon.

    I have seen the tulips in Holland and they were spectacular. When I was a little girl, I used to drool over the tulip pages in the Holland section of our encyclopedia. The I got there myself. What fun and beauty!

    I've enjoyed your photos - Happy Gardening!


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
