This weekend was a great time to spend time outdoors celebrating the beginning of Spring. That’s exactly what I did on Friday when I decided to drive one hour north of Atlanta to Gibbs Gardens in Georgia.
Their Daffodil Gardens are one of the largest daffodil displays in the country covering 50-acres. I found the “early blooms” of the first stage of growth for these “daffodils” filling every hillside.” They will continue to bloom until April 15th.
I enjoyed walking three miles along the pathways surrounding the landscaped grounds.
My trip was perhaps a little early for experiencing the full blossoming of the season for the other gardens, but it was worth it with temperatures reaching a high of 65 degrees.
