I began my drive down here mid-day Monday and arrived Tuesday evening. I had originally set out with the idea that I would stop off near DC and visit the Smithsonian for a few days. As I started my journey, I thought it wiser to get to Asheville and find a place to live. I did find a place and I will be moving in later today. Yay!
It is so beautiful here! The color has not returned yet from winter, but I look forward to watching it return. There are already blossoms on trees and daffodils blooming. I have not been to Biltmore Estate yet, but I'm sure the 50k tulips they have planted there have broken through the ground and will be ready for their debut next month during the festival of flowers.
