Ahhhh, Yes!!!!! Spring is finally here in Georgia! Don't slam your computer shut if you live in the North and are STILL experiencing winter. I promise.....spring is on it's way......really.
This incredible sight is at Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, Georgia, which is less than an hour north of me. While beautiful at every season, spring brings 20 million daffodils. YES! 20 million! My sweet friend, Anne, and I took our first trip up there of the year. We bought season's passes and have promised each other that we'll get there at least once a season.
This is the sight you see as you pass over the bridge at the entrance. This stream goes through the grounds and so many of the dazzling gardens are along there.
These have been planted by Jim Gibbs for thirty years, but just opened to the public last year.
I wish I could convey to you the joy these little guys bring me!
Can you stand it?
Other breathtaking signs of spring welcomed us, too.
This might be my favorite Camilla.
And look at these perky little faces.
So many places that I have lived grow these beautiful magnolia trees, but I rarely got to see them this full of blooms. They always seemed to be nipped by a late frost.
But not this beauty!
There's lots and lots more to see at Gibbs Gardens, but I'll save it for some later posts.
This incredible Japanese Garden is the largest in the country. It certainly deserves a post all of it's own.
But, for today, I'm going to let these iconic signs of spring be the star.
