It was quite a treat today to visit the gardens of Claude Monet in the village of Giverny. He moved into his home in 1883 and died in 1926. Monet created the most extensive gardens that have been immortalized in countless paintings. It’s wonderful to know that Monet pursued gardening as much as he loved painting. Lucky man to have two amazing passions.
I took these photos with my iPhone. A lot of my friends take photos of flowers all the time. I never did. This was a great opportunity. I couldn’t pass it up. A number of people told me they waited a lifetime to see these gardens. It didn’t disappoint.
