In 1980, a landscaper named John Gibbs started building gardens on 300 acres of land in north Georgia. 32 years later, he opened Gibbs Gardens to the public. Steve & I stopped there for several hours on our way to Murphy. So peaceful & glorious."Heaven must look like this," as the church lady when she stumbled on Steve's 4 acres. Steve said, If I had a billion dollars, I could do a lot more with my land. There were waterfalls, streams, a Japanese garden, a wildflower meadow, the manor house with a view of the mountains. Everywhere we go we find so much beauty.
