We were at the Biltmore on Saturday May 3rd so the flowers that were blooming well at this point were the Azaleas and the Wisteria still hadn’t lost it’s glow. This walled garden will probably be spectacular when all the roses bloom.
Today is my last day in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Katie will be driving me to the little airport for my flight to Orlando, Florida this afternoon. I won’t be escaping the heat in Florida as the forecast is calling for temps in the upper 80’s the 5 days that I’m there. I’m happy to report I was able to jam everything into my one medium suitcase for this leg of my trip. I’m leaving a small suitcase here for Katie and Andrew to use on their return trip to Seattle. I wasn’t sure I could shlep around 2 suitcases, a computer bag and camera bag around the in Orlando while I wait for Dear to arrive on a later flight than mine so I’m pleased that I can leave a suitcase here.
Can you believe it’s the fifteenth of May already?

No, I can’t. Bet that there were times when you thought it would never arrive. Good deal for getting all that you need into one medium suitcase. When will you next see Katie and Andrew?
Vee, I will see them again in August!
So much beauty, but glory, that white wisteria is STUNNING. I had to remind myself it was the 15th of May after I just read about a potential FREEZE this weekend. SIGH….so ready for the cold to be done and over with. Safe travels and LOTS of fun in Florida!
Oh how love and the south is definitely in full bloom! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful sights to see there at the Biltmore…fabulous gardens! I love the photo of Kati as you’re looking through the oval opening in the lattice.
So by now you’re in Florida, reunited with your hubby! Stay cool!
I keep wanting to click “like” under your wonderful photos — too much time on FB!! Hope your flights got straightened out. Have fun in Orlando.
Time is marching by quickly this year. – Again many lovely photos here. Your daughter is so pretty. I love Wisteria and oh my those pink lilies are gorgeous.
So pretty. I’d love to visit that place. And I can’t believe it’s already the middle of May either!
