The Monet Gardens


“Every time I see a special flower that is all in bloom, or a garden all dressed up, I think of Claude Monet. I wish I could share the view with him. I wonder what he would have said.

“That’s why it was so thrilling to recently visit his house and gardens in Giverny, France. I got to see first hand what inspired him to become the founder of French Impressionist paintings.

“It was such a privilege to photograph his outdoor treasures and understand his love of nature.”
