Claude Monet’s Home and Garden at Giverny

Claude Monet's Home & Studio

One of my favorite places to visit in France is Maison et Jardins de Claude Monet (Claude Monet’s Home and Gardens) at Giverny.

 As I walk through the old home, I imagine Claude Monet in his daily life, doing what he loved: gardening and painting.

I had seen one of the famous Water Lilies paintings many years ago and was amazed at its beauty; but once I visited the water garden for myself – I was in awe.

It’s so peaceful and beautiful. You can certainly see Monet’s inspiration, and why he painted this scene so many times – at various times of day and in different seasons. These pictures were taken in mid-October with the vivid fall colors showing beautifully.

I find this place so incredible that even with the throngs of people visiting, I could stay here all day and write stories inspired by Monet and his artist friends who visited here before me.
