~How does your garden grow?~

Have you visited Asheville, North Carolina's Biltmore Estate? The gardens are absolutely amazing! This August, the Biltmore's second annual Flower Carpet will be installed. Take a look at last summer's Flower Carpet.

You can visit this one-of-a kind 'living tapestry' August 14 - 30, 2009. The 14,400-square-foot Flower Carpet features over 100,000 flowers and plants.

This year the Flower Carpet will be patterned as a fleur de lis.

That's one way to 'grow' a garden!

Hello dear Deborah, how beautiful the carpet of flowers are. The Biltmore is an amazing place to visit anytime but I sure do not want to miss this years flower carpet. In fact we will be visiting the Biltmore on Friday. We have annual passes and go quite often. I feel so lucky to be able to do this as often as we do.

I have missed visiting your posts and I am so happy to be home for good. I have missed visiting and commenting so much. I love having computer time finally. This summer has been soooo busy.

I hope we can get together again. I love visiting with you.

Take care Deborah.

Well, as we know, everything at the Biltmore House is always amazing! Should be beautiful this year done as a fleur de lis - I'd go but as I'm still travelling out West it's doubtful we'll make Asheville until perhaps Fall!

Hope all is well - have missed you Deborah. Home again soon - after resting and getting back to normal I hope to see you dear.

Hi Deborah, I am missing your blog visits, are you taking a break for the summer? You probably said so and I missed it. I just watched this Utube again and find it amazing. I hope to see the new one this month.

Missing you my friend.

Love, Jeanne
