    Water Lily Pond, Monet's Gardens. Giverny, France

  • Life is Beautiful

    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!
