This beautiful light and plant-filled space on the tour of the Biltmore Estate was the highlight of our visit. I couldn’t find much information about it, and the staff I asked about this said they didn’t know much about it other than it was used as an informal sitting room. Still, it was gorgeous and reminded me of my office at home, which has more than 50 large tropical houseplants and a similar walnut wood. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed making them!
One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing new plants, visiting gardens, and learning more about how local history influenced the area’s garden design (or vice versa!) The gardens at Biltmore Estate were a bit sparsely planted, but part of that is due to the fact that we visited in September. Still, the estate’s greenhouses were stunning and filled to the brim with tropical plants, rare varieties of variegated houseplants, and beautifully tended orchids. Here are some of my favorite photos from our visit, so be sure to read my thoughts on Biltmore Estate to know more before you visit!
Berlin’s Botanic Garden & Botanical Museum is home to more than 20,000 stunning flowering plants, as well as a castle shaped glasshouse that represents the more than 20,000 individual castles found scattered around Germany. This exceptional garden educates visitors on both native plant species as well as endangered plants, which serves to foster a deeper appreciation of nature and the environment, and the gardens also strive to encourage visitors to get involved in their communities to protect and become stewards of our natural world.
