If water gardens are your thing, look no further than the Italian Garden at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. This garden next to Biltmore House has not one, not two, but three large water gardens to admire up close.
During the summer months, we’re profiling the four state parks near Asheville, NC, as part of Inn on Mill Creek’s nod to the 100th birthday of the North Carolina State Park System in 2016. Our July feature is Chimney Rock State Park and its iconic 315-foot granite namesake. Currently, the way to get to the top of Chimney Rock is a set of 499 steps. So…up, up, up, we go. Let’s do this.
We’ve chosen a decidedly American bird for our July 2016 pick in our 12 Months of Birding at the Inn blog series: The American Redstart. Not only does this feathered fellow have “American” in its name, but you can find it in nearly every state in the continental U.S. during the summer or migration period in spring and fall.
Work continues on our Guest Favorites Garden, a small garden space where we highlight plants and flowers that are favorites of our guests.
