Two surprises awaited me when I visited Claude Monet’s house and gardens in Giverny, France. One, his house was much bigger than I thought it would be — a mansion for the times he lived, and two, his gardens were less formal than imagined.
Mid summer was the perfect time to visit, while the majority of plants were in full bloom. Another 3.2 gazillion people shared the perfect time with me. I had a split second to get this shot before another person crossed my path.
It was well worth the time and effort.
Thought for the Day: In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
