Monet’s garden, Part II

They were ready for me in Giverny since all the flowers were on the purple end of the color spectrum. Also, they were trying to kill me since my allergies had a party all over my face with so much pollen around. Still, totally worth the trip. Next time, I’ll pack antihistamines.

Monet’s garden, Part I

A long time ago I recommended going to Giverny, the town where Monet settled to live and work. I hadn’t been since I was 7 and a half but had fond memories. I went again and those memories were justified as it’s a totally easy train ride and the grounds do not disappoint.

Here are a bunch of lily pads, descendants of the ones Monet painted, in his back garden.
