Visiting Giverny

Today is a chilly and grey day here on the Pacific coast so I thought I'd remind myself of warmer days.
Have you heard of Claude Monet's Giverny home?  His glorious garden, pink house, yellow dining room?  The brilliant blue kitchen tiles, sunny studio and lily pond?
All of this and more is found a short drive outside of Paris.  Due to some car rental delays we barely made it in time to get in by the cut off of 5:30 pm but I am so grateful that we visited.
It is a feast for the eyes and there is no wonder that Monet painted there until his death as inspiration is around every corner.

I hope this warms your day. As it brings back lovely memories for mine.
