Garden at Giverny

“I must have flowers, always, and always.”

–Claude Monet

I thought perhaps while my own garden is in such a disreputable state, I might share a few garden images and quotes with you over the next few days.  If you are a gardener at heart or an art lover, you may already know of Monet’s love of flowers. His garden is still considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and attracts thousands of visitors to Giverny, France, every year. For information and some lovely photos of the garden that inspired so many of Monet’s paintings, check this link:

Wouldn’t you love to go there?  Maybe some of you have?  If so, was it as beautiful as it looks?

  1. Hi, Jiltaroo. Good to see you again. If you go, take pictures for us! 🙂 From what I’ve seen online, many places in the garden are easily recognizable, particularly the bridge over the lily pond. I’ll see if I can find a good photo of that to post here.

    Thanks for stopping by!
