Monet’s House and Garden

Another cross-off on my bucket list!

It was a bit of a trek- From Fontainebleau to Paris (40 min. train). Gare de Lyon to Gare de St. Lazare (25 min. subway). Paris to Vernon, (50 min. fast train ride) + shuttle bus (15 min.) from Vernon to Giverny. But we did it! Unfortunately the only accessible parts of Monet’s house were the walk paths in between the ponds and flowers and no photo taking allowed in his house. Nonetheless the first site of the plants and flowers at the site immediately flashed in image if his paintings in my mind and managed to get one decent sketch in my tiny moleskin. The lily pads and willow trees! .. the bridge seemed a bit off though…

I don’t usually photograph flowers and gardens this compulsively, or ever.
