Beautiful gardens :Monet's garden and Miromesnil.

From the conservatory or the sunhouse, there is one step to do before the garden. This beautiful garden is close to my home and is in Giverny, it is Monet's house.I love to have a  walk through this lovely garden (only during the week, because it's over crowded the week ends) one day during the week the garden is closed to leave the place to the painters . the colors of the garden changes with the seasons, it is closed during the winter of course and re open for Easter.The village by itself is a nice place to visit . ( my pictures)

On this picture you can see Monet's house.

The Japanese bridge.

The Nynpheas.

Miromesnil garden.

You can see these  painting in the museum of the " ORANGERIE " in Paris .( this is worth seeing ,if you go to Paris)

I love these photos. Beautiful, serene and relaxing. I can see why you walk this garden once a week. In the Spring, when it re-opens it will be stunning. I hope that you will share this garden with us again.

What lovely photographs. My father visited the gardens once and said you have to get there as they open in the morning to take photographs etc... because of all the tourists. It looks very quiet when you took your pics.

I went to the Royal Academy, London a few years ago when they had a special Monet exhibition, it was wonderful.
