Builtmore Blooms ~ Asheville Souvenirs

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last year in Asheville, NC. During our visit of the Builtmore Estates, I fell completely in love with the garden (I enjoyed the castle too). I was really amazed to see so many flowers blossom this time of the year. Absolutely breathtaking! And let’s not forget the aroma…

Since this weekend is dedicated to all the mothers in the US, in Canada…and in most of the rest of the world (except for Haiti), I want to showcase the wonderful gardens and blooms of the Builtmore Estate, and dedicate this gallery post to all the mothers and soon to be mothers in the world, starting with my own two.
