Adventures at Gibbs Gardens!

Jared surprised me with a date to Gibbs Gardens in Ballground, GA. It's one of the nation's largest estate gardens and it is absolutely beautiful. Right now, the daffodils are on display. There are 20 million planted, and even though they are almost gone for the season, there is still 4 million in bloom!


The late-bloomers are generally fragrant, so we spent a lot of time with our noses in the flowers.


I thought these doubles were so pretty!


I love the pale pink in the centers of this type of daffodil.


I had never seen such small daffodils before!




Daffodil sefies.


This kind smelled like candy!


Mr. Gibbs lives on the estate, and you're allowed to tour the gardens near his home. They're not in full bloom yet, but they're still beautiful.


I am a sucker for koi ponds.


I swear this fish was a dinosaur. It was huge!




No one is allowed in the house, but the outside is gorgeous.


I love this gate!


Jared was obsessed with these crazy trees in the Japanese garden.



Jared and I bought a season's pass because every three weeks there is something new blooming. They have festivals all year long and I can't wait to go back!

The whole day was fantastic!
