View of the gardens from Monet's bedroom window - the water garden is behind the hedges.
and the house !
No photos were allowed inside the house which is a great shame as the rooms were as colourful as the gardens. ( As you can see, almost impossible to get any photos without someone else in the frame!!) We were actually quite lucky as we got to the gardens early in the morning and missed most of the coach loads of tourists that were arriving by the minute!! But how could you not want to share this with the whole world!! One thing is certain - I will be back in June next year to see the roses bloom, but after almost 4 hours of walking the gardens I started to feel like this I must admit!!!
Didn't find him in Giverny but quite nearby - but isn't he just so cute !!
Back to reality now, and on with the sewing!!
