Monets Garden

This morning, when I was out on a bicycle ride, I passed by fields of blooming poppies. That reminded me of Claude Monet and his paintings. A few years ago we ended up in his fantastic garden in Giverny where I took this pictures.

Monet moved into this pink house in 1883 and started the work on this magical garden. After his death in 1926 the garden was neglected in 50 years, until a reconstruction, and opened in 1980 as a museum. Worth a visit if you are on the road between Paris and Rouen.
