Biltmore Flower Carpet

 

 Flower carpets are popular in places such as India and Belgium as we have previously reported, but now the United States is getting on the flower boat as well. The Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina is hosting it's second annual Flower Carpet on it's South Terrace. The flower carpet will feature 140,000+ plants over 14 acres of land and was designed by a Biltmore employee. The design incorporates designs that can be found on the mansion itself, such as the fleur-de-lis motif on a stone pillar outside. To visit during the day is included with an admission to the mansion, but nighttime tickets will cost $65, which include live jazz music and sunset views. As this years doesn't go on public viewing until tomorrow, the pictures below are of last years.  Biltmore Flower Carpet at Night
