Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Monet's Jardin....Giverny

Monet's beautiful garden in the quaint little village of Giverny - is an absolute delight.
The garden has been re-created to replicate as close as possible - how it looked, when Monet lived and painted here - I can fully understand why he loved to paint at Giverny- especially the Japanese water-garden with it's ever changing
moods & reflections.
When I visited, the central alley was almost completely covered with nastursians

The water-lillies weren't in flower but even so the -garden was a delight
I noticed several artists had set up their easel - it reminded me of that exquisite little childrens book "Linea in Monet's Garden" where Mr Bloom & Linea
journey out to spend the day at La maison rose !!
