When the daylilies are blooming, there is no better place to be than Blue Ridge Daylilies. Blue Ridge Daylilies in Alexander, North Carolina is just a short trip north from Asheville. The garden is bursting with color in late June and early July each year. You can stroll the grounds enjoying the flowers and you can even purchase many of the plants as well.
The Central Railway Museum always puts on a good show. We piled in the car and made the road trip down to Easley, South Carolina to see what we could pick up for our home train layouts. The Model Train Expo is held at the wonderful Rock Springs Church Impact Center where there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the show. They even provide a free shuttle bus from the parking lot to bring you straight to the front door! There is plenty to see with area clubs showcasing their modular layouts. The vendor offerings are also very decent with a few bargains to be found as well. This is one of my favorite train shows and I try to attend it every year.
We almost missed visiting the Christmas displays at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina this season. But, we made it during the last weekend that it was decorated. It is always an impressive site to see all the decorations and trees. We try to make it there every year.
