Monet’s Garden. More than a painting.

Monet’s garden at Giverny is an amazing experience. I visited here in late Autumn before it closed for the Winter period. Not only was it visually stunning but the smell of the garden was intoxicating. There is a bit of line up to stand on the iconic green bridge (as featured above in both image and painting) and have your photo taken. Well worth the wait though. It is just like stepping into his painting. The gift shop that you are obliged to visit to exit the garden is nice, different, unusual. The lilipads have left no stone unturned. Umbrellas, pens, aprons, socks, plates, mugs and yes, underpants! Monet’s garden is located at Giverny and is open from 1st April to 1st November annually. Visit their website here
