Candlelight at Biltmore Estate

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Our new tradition
The 2015 Biltmore Candlelight Tour.
Hi Everybeary
This is our second Christmas tour of the Biltmore Estate by candlelight.  It's  almost magical as night falls and the tree lights turn on, both inside and outside.  The family asks that no interior pictures are  taken and and we do honor those rules, but I can't begin to tell you of the bee-u-tee-ful decorations and all those Christmas trees, at least one in almost every room.
It's a self guided tour, so you can take as much time as needed to study each room that is opened for the tour.  We have been on the regular tour many times and it never fails that we see something that we missed the last time, there is just so much to see.  Mom loves the vintage toys under the trees and oh, the nursery is just out of a storybook.  Many of the children were born in that nursery, although Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt had only one child, a daughter, Cornelia.  Cornelia had her children in the same nursery.

Entering the estate, that is the gate house

Happy weekend, everybeary.

Road Trip

Blue Ridge Parkway

Hi, it's me Prudence and I have a few lovely pictures to share of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
As we climbed I took pictures of the elevation markers - and the best will be the last, Mount Mitchel.
But here are a few as we traveled the parkway:
One of two tunnels we drove through, Mom and I were in the second row taking pictures out the side window.  Aunt Kathy rode up front with Dad.
Here we are at 3690 feet.  

Hope you enjoyed the little picture show, more to come next week.

Happy Weekend.

Wintering a Fuchsia

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi, everbeary, I am re-posting this information for anyone who has had a bee-u-tee-ful fuchsia plant this summer.  Here is a picture of ours (he is 2 years old now).  The severe storms knocked many blooms off but he still has one or two.

 Just before frost we took him into the garage, hung him up and every month gave him just a little drink of water.  Leaves dried and fell off but the amazing thing, tiny new leaves kept growing all winter.
In the spring Mom will replace his soil (we didn't do that last spring) and a nice new pot.
