Come join me for an exploration of Gibbs Gardens - those that have been there before know what to expect, those that haven't you are in for a real treat - the place is beautiful, flowers far and wide - daffodils should be in full bloom, cherry blossoms too - only mother nature can tell when the best days will be but the date I have chosen shoud be right in the mid of the blooming season for daffodils and cherry blossoms.
