Thursday in the Garden

This Thursday in the Garden edition is brought to you by the sites of Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina.
 Here's the first view of the magnificent Biltmore House.
 This handsome lion was waiting to greet us when we were closer to the house...
 Saint Francis stood in one of the small gardens...
 These purple puffs are called Allium.  They reminded me of something out of a Dr Suess movie!
 This alligator was friendly and was protecting some of the tropical plants in the greenhouse.
 Have always loved blue hydrangeas.  Well, anything blue really :)
 This is another view of the purple puff allium...
 We saw many interesting creatures in the garden shop...this rooster was very tall!
On the way to the new Antler Point Village, we waited for a family of geese to cross the road...they wouldn't tell us why they were crossing though!
To see more wonderful gardens, visit Master Gardener Jonsie.
