Gibbs Gardens :: Ball Ground, GA

May 18, 2012 Gardening, Nature 0 Comments

I visited Gibbs Gardens up in Ball Ground, GA last week. The gardens have been under planning and development for about 30 years and just opened to the public this past March. Hands down my favorite part was the Japanese garden.  I loved all of the little Buddha statues and pagodas. The purple irises really stood out against the various shades of green. When I got home and looked at the pictures that I had taken I realized just how carefully planned all of the textures, colors and sizes were. The attention to detail throughout the gardens is impressive, to say the least.

It’s well worth a visit (or two or three). I can’t wait to go back at a different time of year to see something different. I was a little too early to see the lily pad flowers last week, but I’d really like to see the wildflowers in the fall.
