We’re finding ways to stay safe, healthy, and happy while following the Buncombe County “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order. There’s so much we have to be thankful for, including an amazing and dedicated staff, milestones to celebrate, and a gorgeous spring! The grounds at Ardenwoods are bursting with trees and flowers in full bloom, including begonias, dahlias, and tulips, just to name a few. We encourage you to take a walk (practicing social distancing, of course!) around the grounds to see if you can spot some of the flowers in this post — then don’t forget to snap some photos of your own!

Watch the WLOS video to learn more about Hedi’s amazing life and some of the funny gifts she received from friends!
