Month: September 2019
Read the title and think about how succinct it could be. I shall try and make it short – less is more, right?
This August holidaying in France (I loved it as much as ever!). My favourite day out – a visit to Monet’s Garden in Giverny. What a tranquil oasis. I’d highly recommend a visit. The village remains almost as it did when he lived there from 1883-1840 (gorgeous cafe and house in the main Rue, see above).
Monet’s house itself is still lovely (we read up beforehand not to expect his own paintings on display, more his own collection of Japanese drawings). No photos allowed inside, preserving it for future generations. The gardens are beautifully kept, the famous water lily pond amazing, yet the bridge in all the paintings is now slightly hidden.
And when I wasn’t visiting lovely places, supping french wine, eating cheese and pastries or sunbathing, I crocheted. Progress since former blog here.
