From early March to mid-April, you can see acres of daffodils blooming at Gibbs Gardens in North Georgia. The fields of cheerful white, yellow, and orange flowers are a perfect way to kick out those winter blues.
We picked a warm, March day to drive to Ball Ground, Georgia, to visit the 250+-acre gardens. The sun was shining, the warm air was blowing, and we were happy to be getting out of town for a short bit. Gibbs Gardens did not disappoint!
We spent hours strolling through the gardens, which included several ponds, a manor house, and more than we could fit into one day. With the weather this nice, we weren’t the only visitors to Gibbs Gardens, but it was far from crowded.
After a long afternoon of walking, we stopped at the little cafe on the grounds to have a snack and a bit of rest and relaxation.
Acres of Gardens to Visit
Gibbs Gardens has several hundred acres of beautifully landscaped gardens that can be toured — different seasons feature different gardens. In early spring, the daffodils start first with the cherry blossoms and tulips following, finally ending with dogwoods.
In spring and early summer, the azaleas are highlighted as well as roses and hydrangeas. The summer features fields of daylilies, crape myrtles, annuals and perennials. In fall, there are fields of wildflowers creating arrays of color, and the Japanese maples in late fall create gorgeous hues of reds, yellows, and oranges.
What’s In Bloom
The Gibbs Gardens website has a calendar to highlight what is in bloom in which season. I am planning to visit during the wildflowers colorfest and daylily colorfest in the coming seasons.
