Conservatory Foliage

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When Betsy and I visit the Conservatory at Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina, we usually pay a lot of attention to the beautiful blossoms, but the foliage can be beautiful as well.  I got this photo on a January, 2013, visit to Biltmore.

With the bitter sub-zero temps we keep getting here, I needed a picture like that to warm my bones. I just have to imagine being down there. Ah, that's better.
