The same day we traveled to Rouen, we decided to turn our bus in the direction of the little town of Giverny. I did not know before we decided to go what the significance of this place was. The artist Monet lived here in Giverny for a part of his life. He painted the scenery and the oh-so famous Japanese bridge paintings. The gardens and pond we so beautiful. I can’t imagine being here when Monet was in his prime and watching him paint all of his masterpieces! When we visited Spring was a little behind so I think we were pretty lucky to so as many flowers blooming as we did!This last shot is a view from Monet’s window. It’s crazy to think he could have sat here with an easel and painted the gardens right outside his window!
