The Water Gardens at Biltmore Estates

In late June, my friend, JoAnn, and I visited Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, N.C. where we did a two day tour. It was fabulous, I'm so happy we visited America's largest home. 

Before we go in, I'm sharing my pics from the reflecting pools where we saw koi and goldfish swimming in the pools.  These pools are part of the Italian Gardens. 

Not only were the fish interesting to watch, the water lilies and Lotus flowers were just gorgeous.

Be sure to stop back by for our visit to the Conservatory at Biltmore and see the exotic orchids, ferns, and palms (picture overload) - Judy

What an amazing place the Biltmore is...perhaps one day I will visit. I do love posts about it as each blogger focuses on a different aspect. The koi must be fascinating to can get the sense of movement from your photos.

You took some wonderful photos of the fish and the beautiful pond! We have lived in that area for years and still love to visit the Biltmore every chance we get. There's SO much to see and it changes for the seasons. I can't wait to see more of your photos! Hugs, Diane

Hi Judy,
We visited Biltmore about 25 years ago and really enjoyed the tour. Your mosaics are truly lovely, thank you for sharing your trip with us for Mosaic Monday this week.

The lilies are so elegant, whether sitting low on a leaf or waving on a delicate stem. You must have had such a lovely day!

The Biltmore Estates look like a wonderful place to visit. Water features are always enjoyable, especially if the day was warm.
