Giverny Pictorial

We are obviously not going to have a Spring this year in Paris. Fortunately for me, I spend the one week of nice weather playing tour guide and got to really enjoy the weather. I love flowers and gardens, so being out and about in Paris during this one week of sunshine was wonderful. Lucky for me, we also went to Giverny. If you come to Paris, I definitely recommend you make the trip to this tiny town where Monet painted many of his most famous canvases. It is well worth the trip! For those of you who have never been, here is some of what you are missing.

I LOVE Giverny!!!
Though I made the mistake of returning there on a Sunday a few years ago.
My first time there it was not crowded but it is still amazingly beautiful no matter what.
Lovely pictures!

Never heard of that place, but I can see where and why Money got his inspiration!

Weather has been bad in France? I used to like spring there (well, better than in Canada...)

Ooooh! Lovely, lovely. I haven't been to Giverny yet, unfortunately... even after several visits to France. Hopefully next time?

It looks beautifully cozy, just like Monet's images. Thanks for sharing the photographs.

Sure looks like Spring to me from the photos!
