Garden/Fountain Hike

Staying at Greg’s Cabin at Willow Winds proved to be a great choice. I loved having my green tea in the morning on the outdoor balcony looking out at the Tulip trees and listening to the sounds of the fountains. The location was perfect: close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Downtown Asheville, and the Airport. There is so much to do here in this beautiful and majestic landscape!

Willow Winds has several 25 fountains and gardens throughout the grounds. Take a leisurely stroll through the grounds to find something blooming almost year round. The season starts early with millions of Daffodils that give way to masses of Azaleas and Rhododendron. Summer finds Black Eyed Susan’s, Magnolias, Stella Dora Lilies and fragrant Roses in an abundant riot of color. Privets, Hostas, Pansies, and Begonias punctuate the forest with color and scent.

We now have several areas on the resort property with many, many rose bushes.

I’m sitting on my favorite rocking chair on the large covered porch ~ looking down the grass hill, past the herb garden to the lovely fish and fountain pond, surrounded by thick trees of every description including two of my favorite ~ Weeping Willows.

The grill is heating; waiting for the lamb chops I bought at the Farmers Market this morning.

I enter the living room with the high ceiling, stone fireplace, leather couches and rocking chairs; which many years ago was a one room cabin.

Sunlight filters through one of the long glass sliding doors which through the other I see my hammock waiting for me.

I’m home again; “Pat’s Place” is mine.
