Floating flora

Summer is the time to admire gorgeous water lilies at Gibbs Gardens


Yes, it is very hot out but a walk though the manicured paths along the tranquil shoreline of pools filled with brilliant aquatic flowers will take your mind off the heat.  Even when the sun is beating down and we all are looking forward to the cool weather of autumn, the beauty of nature displayed at Gibbs Gardens draw visitors from all over the Atlanta area.

Just looking at the image above brings back vivid memories.  I see the still waters reflecting the shapes and colors to multiply the flower’s beauty.  Small drops bead up on the petals and remind us of the cool relief that water can bring.  If it wasn’t such a perfect vision of peacefulness, I would jump straight in and splash around.

Humm… I may be due for another visit.  Very soon!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
