Monet’s Garden

My old friend, Nancy has been an artist ever since I have known her. She paints water colors, makes jewellery, and has a splendid garden.

Naturally, Nancy visited Monet’s garden in Givenchy, Normandy at the height of it’s beauty. She shared her photographs with me to you.

I did a little research on Monet and learned that he often painted the same scene many times in different light at different times of the day. The idea of capturing light seems so ethereal to me , like capturing air.

Monet planted his garden in 1883 and spent much of his time there painting

. I hope these photographs allow your mind to wander at the beauty of the artistic mind and remember that Spring is on the way.
