    Your dress was perfect for the garden! Loved the tiles in the kitchen.

    What a lovely assortment of photos depicting the house and the garden. I love the mixture of colors! Now plan more activities in air conditioned spaces and avoid the heat as best you can.

    Thank you for the lovely pictorial tour. I adore that place and would love to revisit it. Also, thoroughly enjoyed Monet’s comment about his preferred gardening style.

    Thank you for a walk down memory lane. My favorite painter by far. When I visited Musee de l’Orangerie years later, I thought I had gone to heaven. All so lovely.

    I had not thought of Monet as an actual gardener until your comment about him not liking ‘constrained garden’. Here is what I found on Google:

    Who planted Monet’s garden?
    With the help of his family and six gardeners, Monet planted, nurtured and composed his garden — a world of flowers made up of yellow, pink and red roses arrayed on the ground and draping over metal arches; patches of bright red geraniums; pale purple lavender; deep purple pansies; irises; impatiens; peonies and more.
    He had spent his entire youth moving from town to town along the river Seine. But wherever he lived, he planted flowers. He justified his obsessive garden-making on the grounds that flowers gave him a subject to paint while he was indoors

    Thank you for the visit to Giverny

    What a treat for the senses, even if we are missing the sound of the bees and the smell of lavender. Lovely inside and out, especially the yellow dining room and those geraniums! Thank you for making this come alive for all of us! Enjoy and I wish you cooler weather!
