Gibbs Gardens tour--Ballground Georgia

Japanese gardens usually have a gate/arch like this

Places to sit and enjoy the views

We had the pleasure of a visit to Gibbs Gardens in Ballground Ga. about 1 hour North of us. Mr Gibbs-- of the landscaping firm of same name --has created a wonderful garden that he delights in sharing with visitors. He always knew he would open it to the public someday. It is so serene and he has done such a wonderful job of making every view a pleasing one.

As you know if you read this blog I am in love with Japan-- the gardens there and arts and culture. This is the largest Japanese garden in the United States. He traveled to Japan to learn how to create an authentic one.

A visit is a good walking workout. You walk about 2.5 miles total to see everything. They have a bloom guide and you can plan your visits to see different things in bloom throughout the year. I can't wait to return to see roses and rhododendrons in bloom.

Have a Pink day!
