    Lovely garden. Would like to be sitting in that rowboat relaxing on the pond. Thanks for the pictures.

      If I promise not to talk and ruin the serenity, can I share the rowboat with you?

        Michaele, your presence would only enhance the experience ?

    Beautiful gardens. Very interesting to see the different colour focus depending on the season. These are all purple and white in the gardens. Come August, the glads, crocosmia, and others are in bloom and the colours are hot, hot, hot. And the pond. sigh. It never disappoints. Thank you for sharing these travel treasures.

    Oh, how delightful and serene. Giverney was the one place on my trip to France that I did not get to visit. It is on the list for the next trip. Your photos are lovely and capture the beauty that so inspired Monet. Thanks for sharing your travels.

    His paintings of his garden were what made me love Monet!! Thanks for sharing such beauty with the rest of us!! ???

    If garden lovers have a chance they should go visit Monet's properties and his home. You will remember that visit and yearn to revist it.

    Nice shots. So floriferous.

    I have always loved the view from Monet's house to the gate (rather than the opposite view) - this is one of the loveliest photos of that view I've ever seen! Thanks so much for sharing!

    These are the perfect pictures to give me a feeling of serenity on what, for me, is an unusually busy day. Thanks for sending them in.

    Nice James! So glad you were able to go see this and so glad you shared it with us! I have not been there yet but it is on my list! His paintings are so dreamy and so are your photos! Great memories for sure! Thanks again!

    Beautiful pix of a gorgeous garden. I visited Giverny a few years ago, didn't van enter the house to see Monets paintings. Just inhaled the images and fragrance of the very special. Thanks for posting this GPOD.
