"Walk into a Painting" Giverny by Sue08080

Take a stroll through Claude Monet's home and garden. Perhaps the beauty will inspire you also!

The house is painted in bright colors. Some say that this was due to Monet's failing eyesight.

This bridge was painted by Monet.

    Once in a Paris gallery we viewed his paintings, but never had the opportunity to visit his former home--it would have been wonderful!!

    Nice flower photos on your tips. It really does look more like a house than a museum.

    One place high on my list. We just had a wonderful drama in the UK about Monet's life. Watch out for it!
