Treat yourself to a lovely day at Gibbs Gardens. It is filled with trails weaving through carefully planned gardens with plenty of shade and benches. My favorite was the Monet's garden complete with a replica of the bridge and waterlillies. If you are visiting Atlanta, take time to drive up to Ball Ground (about 45 minutes from Atlanta) and visit Gibbs Gardens. This was 20 years in the making and just a lovely setting.
I took my mom for Mother's Day this year.
The hydrangeas were in bloom.
Another view of Monet's bridge.
Covered walkway leading up to the manor house.
This is the Gibbs' home with pool in the side yard. You are welcome to wander around, sit and make yourself at home!
This little bench is located just behind the house in a small secret garden.
