Afternoon at Giverney.






Last week I visited Giverney for the first time.
I have always wanted to go and the weather was just wonderful for the visit, warm and sunny.
I was staying with a good friend of mine who has a house about two hours away from the garden.


The kitchen at Giverney.

We went into the house first, what a delight.
 Monet lived at Giverney from 1883 until his death at 86 in 1926.



Monet's bedroom.


Monet's bedroom is a calm sunny room looking directly on to his wonderful garden.
Whilst standing there in the dappled sunlight
 I could not but think of the little room 
of Vincent at Auvers.


The dining room at Giverney.


The house is filled with colour and light and everywhere Japanese
 prints which Monet loved with almost an obsession.





Monet's house.
Out into the garden filled with colour and form - a complete delight to all the senses.





Monet in his garden.








The lily pond.





Looking back at the house.


Water lilies.
