Monet's Water Garden Pond, Giverny, France Inspired by the Japanese engravings Amsterdam merchants were using as wrapping paper in 1871, the Claude Monet became so taken with images, he began a lifelong love affair with all things Japanese. When at last he earned enough money to afford land, Monet purchased property near his house in Giverny, and began to design a garden that would eventually encompass a footbridge, vegetable gardens and a water garden.

Monet's Garden, France. Monet is famous for his waterlily panels... 19 in all. I saw them at L'Orangerie Museum (beside the Louvre). He was a grand master of color and light! Next trip to France, I'll be at Giverny! Thanks for this image, Heather. It's gorgeous!
