They may not look like much yet, but the tips of the daffodil leaves poking out of the mulch are a sight for frozen eyes. At Inn on Main Street bed and breakfast in Weaverville, we are SO ready for porch breakfast weather. The Asheville area has had a tremendous amount of snow and cold, but the past couple weekends have been gorgeous.
The Biltmore Estate is ramping up for flower madness, too. “Take a tropical break from winter with a visit to the Orchid Room in Biltmore’s Conservatory,” says their latest online newsletter. “More than 70 colorful orchids are in peak bloom, now through March. The Orchid Room features bromeliads and orchids, some of which are epiphytes, which gain moisture and nutrients through aerial roots”
I’m an epiphyte neophyte, but it all sounds great to me. And thanks to our discount winter tickets, it should be especially great for our guests.
