As the flowers here in the Midwest continue to spring forth and the trees fully leaf out in all their green glory, I look wistfully at my garden. It’s… fine, but it’s no Monet’s Garden.
A few years ago with my bestie Megan, we had the chance to tour Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny.
And it did not disappoint. 🙂
As I look around my flowerbeds and hanging baskets today, I wonder how much labor and love it would take to make my wee homestead look like Monet’s dreamy gardens?
On our tour we first visited the stunning Japanese-inspired water garden, and his art came to life before our eyes!
Doesn’t it look like a painting? Everywhere we looked was beauty and inspiration…
The other garden is called Clos Normand and is located in front of the house, and is stunning in it’s own way… I loved the arches avenues…
We also toured through the home, and I was besotted with the art filling the walls and this curved sofa…
I’m ready to go back and be inspired all over again… who’s with me? 🙂
