To RSVP, join my Meetup Group, Photo Field Trips with Jim Pettit.
The Daffodils are starting to push up through the soil and mulch and soon they will arrive in all their glory. The Daffodil Festival starts March 1st and ends April 15th. Over 20 years, more than 3,000,000 bulbs have been planted. The most planted in one year was 215,000 bulbs. Each year a daffodil bulb divides producing even more. One of the largest daffodil gardens in the United States covering more than 50 acres.
Gibbs Gardens, less than an hour from Atlanta is nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. Enjoy the serenity of nature and stroll along the streams with many waterfalls or around the water gardens with 22 reflecting ponds. Cross the bridges and refresh yourself with the beauty and fragrance of thousands of plants, flowers, and millions of bulbs that provide a wide array of color, shape and texture for the 16 garden venues. A mature, native woodland surrounds the gardens with the peace and tranquility of nature.
