Last week I paid a visit to Gibbs Gardens with a garden friend. This is my fourth visit and each time I am impressed with how much Jim (with the help of many talented people ) has accomplished since the gardens first opened to the public in March of 2012.
On this glorious day, signs of fall were everywhere, viburnums, sedums, ornamental grasses, fading royal ferns and trees including dogwoods and sourwoods beginning to show fall color. The gardens include 220 acres. Some of the highlights we visited included the woodland, Japanese garden, fern dell and water gardens. There is a tram but we didn’t want to miss anything and chose to walk on our own. Below are some photos from my visit.
For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to visit this gem, Gibbs Gardens is located just an hour North of Atlanta in Ball Ground, Georgia.
If you’re like me, you’ll appreciate the café that offers delicious sandwiches and the gift shop with lots of tempting items. On the brochure they say “An unforgettable experience awaits you at Gibbs Gardens,” I think this sums it up.
