Mother Nature played a very nasty April Fools Day joke on the Northeast yesterday with a classic winter storm. Not. Funny.
What I want is colorful tulips, azaleas, and peonies like these at the Biltmore Estate’s Festival of Flowers. If you’re in North Carolina, or are planning to be, do me a favor and say hello to the flowers from a cold Northeasterner. The festival is running from today until May 15.
One last little bit of triva: the gardens at the Biltmore Estate were originally designed Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of NYC’s own Central Park.
