We’ve had some amazing weather the past two weeks…amazing in that we’ve had all four seasons wrapped into one! Small flurries, thunderstorms, warm sunny days, you name it. So, it’s nice to see that Mother Nature is being consistent with the gorgeous flowers and flowering trees now in bloom around Asheville, Black Mountain and Old Fort — our beautiful neck of the woods. Yep, Spring is still our favorite season.
Here’s what’s in bloom now at the Inn: Lilacs (the one pictured above is outside the Mountain Laurel Room window), daffodils in the White Garden (see below), bleeding hearts, violas and pansies, creeping phlox, tulips (albeit some hot weather days have shortened their days) and candytuft. In the “soon-to-bloom” category, we have irises (any day now) and our rose bushes have teeny tiny buds! So exciting. Visit our B&B Facebook Page for more photos, and consider Liking our page so that you can get automatic updates whenever we post new seasonal photos.
