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.

Spring is always beautiful in the North Carolina mountains, but this year, we’ve seen the mountains gradually wake up to Spring, which is different from the past two years when Spring sprung right out of the gate in mid-March and quickly headed into summer by May. Since springtime has been more normal this year, guests of the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast have been thoroughly enjoying the weeks of vibrant green leaves on the trees and gradual blooms as springtime makes its way from our neck of the woods around Asheville and Black Mountain to higher elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway nearby, just in time for the Parkway’s official opening this weekend.
If today was any indication of what Spring will be like this year…well, in one word: Glorious. A perfect Saturday greeted our guests who are staying with us this first weekend of Spring! The sun was shining, the birds were singing, we opened the windows at the Inn on Mill Creek to fresh mountain breezes and took some photos of our crocuses, which have never failed to give us a colorful Spring introduction.
