Monet’s Garden at Giverny, France

May 30

We spent a pleasant afternoon strolling around the charming hamlet of Giverny, France the other day. The highlight and purpose of our visit was the visit Monet’s house and garden, which the artist created so that he had a natural pallet of light and color for him impressionist creations. Good weather was on our side and we could appreciate the mellow lighting of this region which drew Monet to settle her in the final years of his life.
