Smith Gilbert Gardens surprise in small ways. It is not showy in the way that the Atlanta Botanical Garden is with its HUGE planting and maintenance budget. In October some late-season roses were impressive with their vibrant colors and wonderful scents and delicate camellias were blooming. It is peaceful, but the nearby airport interrupts that peace rather frequently with small aircraft buzzing overhead. I wish one could view the bonsai without peering through a security fence. I was there in October and wished to see just a few chrysanthemums or a display of pumpkins and gourds. It's good, it's just not great.
