I love Paris in the morning, I love Paris in the...
Oh, well; we're in Giverny now!!! Home of Claude Monet (1840-1926) and his beautiful gardens. I'm going to show you all the pictures Doug took and let you start the slideshow and sit back and enjoy the beauty!!
Claude Monet first saw the village of Giverny while looking out a train window in 1883, and the unique light of the Seine Valley kept him in residence for 43 years. He stayed here until his death in 1926. He is buried here as well.
Monet was a founder of French Impressionist painting. It was his ambition of documenting the French countryside by adopting a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.
As we strolled through the gardens we saw the landscapes that have graced countless Monet paintings.
