Weekly photo challenge: Flowers

Claude Monet is one of my favorite painters. I love impressionism. Monet spent a lot of time at his home in Giverny, France surrounded by beautiful abundant floral gardens. His gardens inspired his fabulous paintings. You can read more about Claude Monet and Giverny here and view samples of much of his floral artwork here.

One of the highlights of my 2004 trip to Europe with my daughter and her high school group was a stop at Giverny.

  1. Hi Christine .. Anna looks great amongst the roses … Giverny is just across the Channel and I’ve yet to get there .. cheers and have a lovely weekend .. Hilary

  2. Thanks, everyone. Giverny, minus all the tourists, is a gardener’s dream. I can only imagine, however, because the other tour buses unloaded all their guests the same time ours did. I saw Monet’s little arched bridge, so famous in his paintings, but it was packed solid with people. Don’t you wish we lived in a world where we could visit these beautiful places alone and see them as they were intended?
