A VISIT TO MONET'S GIVERNY.....AHH....IT IS SPRING!!
A few years ago I was able to go to France on a small cruise ship that sailed down the Seine.
On that trip we stopped at various artists colonies and homes along the way. This is our stop at Monet's Giverny.
We did this trip in March if my memory serves me and it was a little cool for that time of year; thus the blossoms were not as magnificent as in years past (or so we were told)!
Looks pretty magnificent to me!!!!
In the background, you can see Monet's home where he lived with his family. It was a two story house, and as I recall, the rooms were modest in size. I'm not sure why we don't have any photos of the inside; perhaps we were not allowed to take any. I just can't remember.
Here is a photo taken from a second story window. Can you imagine looking down on all this lush greenery everyday?
The famous water lilies that he must have painted a hundred times or more.
And of course, the famous bridge that we see in his wonderful paintings.
For those of us who are dealing with snow, rainy, grey days here is a bit of
Blessings dear friends,
