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.

Think about us in the middle of summer, though, when the heat and humidity are so intense that nothing wants to bloom!
