A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Monet’s garden at Giverny. Despite being grey and drizzly most of the time, it was still beautiful. Here are a few out-takes.
The bit Monet missed – the tunnel that leads to the bridge.
Some water lillies – the shop was doing brisk business with umbrellas.
I stayed at a B&B called La Maison Bleue, run by a lovely lady called Françoise. Apparently Claude Monet bought the house and created an extensive vegetable garden there. He also rented it out to his friend, the impressionist artist Guy Rose, who painted many canvasses of the house and surrounding area. Worth a visit too.
