Are you enjoying this tour of Gibbs Gardens?
I’m back with Part 2 of Gibbs Gardens. If you missed Part 1, go back and catch up to read the history of this beautiful gardens in Ball Ground, GA founded by Jim Gibbs. Ball Ground is about an hour from Marietta on the north side of Atlanta.
We did not get to the Manor house, where the Gibbs live full-time, but I’m definitely going to go back and see the house and other blooming plants soon. Hope I can get back and see the azaleas in bloom as well which will be coming up soon.
These pics are more of the Japanese gardens.
The Gibbs have 11 grandchildren and have statues all over that represent each grandchild. I thought this was such a neat idea. They are all unique and special.
Lauren is a long-time lover of books and posed with the reading girl statue.
Loved this one!
There’s even a bridge like Monet’s paintings.
We got one shot with all of us: me, mom, Lauren, Tammy (our family friend) and baby Parker.
We let Parker out of her stroller for some posing next to her namesake, the Fox. She is Parker Fox (a family name, the Fox part).
She wasn’t quite sure what to do, so sat down in the grass.
It was a beautiful day for touring the gardens and we have been waiting for some nice weather like this to return to Georgia.
Parker has some funny facial antics and this is one of her best. She loves sticking out her tongue.
And raising her hands when her mom sings Itsy Bitsy spider to her. This is the sun coming down.
So glad we got to take mom and let her see it all too. Dad didn’t want to go so we left him at home.
He was happy to see her when we got back.
Thought you’d all enjoy seeing a few shots of Parker and dad while she was here visiting. Those 2 are so cute together. Parker is fascinated by him. Love this sweet pic!
She just leaned over on him while she was sitting in his lap. You know he eats that up! He’s always been surrounded by girls.
And that’s a wrap of of my first visit to Gibbs Gardens, which definitely won’t be my last. It was a wonderful day and we all enjoyed it so much.
