Today, this will be a long post. I will bring you to do a guided tour of Monet's garden! Normandy being the birth place of Impressionism , this summer is dedicated to it. This Sunday was also painting day in France. We went to Paris and on our way we stopped at Giverny, at first i was desapointed because it was too late for the peonies and too early for summer flowers. But when we arrived to the pond all the water lilies were in blossom, it was the first time i saw them! i went to the house, but no pictures allowed ! so i bougth some pictures.
First the rooster of the poultry . As the family did a lot og cooking the poultry provided them all the eggs.
I took some pictures from upstairs .
This is the view from the bedrooms.
Ilove this one !
Then i went to the other part of the garden, to the pound... and discovered the water lilies in bloom !
I LOVE the reflection in the water !
There were painter with their straw hat like the impressionists.
This is the part with bamboos.
They tried to make the field represented on one of Monet's paintings.
The old "Café ".
The streets of Giverny , full of flowers!
A private garden.
