Photographer's Note

My last set of pictures from Monet's gardens.
These are the water ponds where the famous 'Water-Lily' paintings were created.

"After ten years of living in Giverny, Monet bought some land from his neighbours and dug a small pond.
Apparently the neighbours objected as they were worried his 'strange plants' would poison the water!

Undeterred Monet continued expanding his ponds until we have the large ponds that we can visit today."

As I recall, we had to go under the road to reach the gardens, as they are separate from the gardens that I have shown you previously.

Two additional pictures in the w/s.
Thank you for looking.
