I solo-parented this weekend and our plans kept changing as the weekend went on. One thing I really wanted to do before the baby arrives was check out the flowers in bloom at Biltmore. I love looking at them and I figured that this weekend was one of the better times to go before it’s too late or I’m too tired. I promised my son that if he would let me take some photos, I’d take him by the playground in Antler Hill Village before we left.
This weekend was chilly! And fairly windy. I had a difficult time getting anything in focus. We still had a good time. We got to the estate just after opening, and there weren’t a ton of people around. 30 minutes into our visit, the crowds were out.
Let’s check out the flowers! My favorite part. 🙂
At this point, I knew I needed something to brighten up my dining room, so went to Trader Joe’s late yesterday afternoon and grabbed an arrangement of tulips. (Definitely not Biltmore standards, but I don’t have money to meet their standards!)
We are renewing our passes this week, and I’m excited to check out more of the grounds when the baby is here. We have some photos of my son when he was just weeks old, laying in the grass in front of the house. I kind of need to recreate those pictures.
What is one thing you have to do in springtime? I often create a summer bucket list, but I may have to do the same for spring.
