Recently my husband and I went to Asheville, NC for the weekend and were able to visit The Biltmore Estate - a Vanderbilt family home. Not bad if you're into palatial 250 room, 178,926 feet square summer homes. Honestly, it is a national treasure. The home, the land, the gardens are all just stunning. Being a flower nerd I was thrilled to visit the gardens. The roses, as you can see, were just breathtaking. The dahlias growing like crazy. And I was so fortunate to be there just in time to see the Japanese anemones in bloom. I'd never seen one in person so that was exciting. Our guide mentioned that they host weddings all over the estate. Can you imagine! Well I certainly can. Which brings me to this very important announcement to the brides of North Carolina - Rosegolden Flowers is willing to travel. In fact, I am heading to Oregon this week to do flowers for the Erich McVey Photography Workshop at Brasada Ranch in Bend. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful team of creatives! AND I get to bring my camera and be a student when I'm not babysitting or arranging flowers. YAY. I can't wait to meet everyone and share images with you guys when I return. Until then, happy Fall.
