Photographer's Note

Monet's garden in Giverny.
70k North West of Paris.
Now in the Eure department. (Eure does not show on 'states' when posting so I guessed at Basse Normande.)

"Claude Monet lived in his home at Giverny for 43 years, from 1883 - 1926.

His garden is probably the most famous garden in France.
He painted some of his most famous paintings whilst living at Giverny, including his water-lily and Japanese bridge paintings.

The garden is in two parts. A flower garden at the front of the house. The more famous water- gardens, which were started ten years after Monet's arrival in Giverny, and constructed on land bought on the other side of the road from his house."

This scene shows the 'Grand Allee', the central alley which as you can see leads straight to the front door of the house.
We visited in August, so the colourful display here is mainly dahlias and nasturtiums.

Two more shots in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
