In May I will be visiting Monet's Garden at Giverny, the trip was a Xmas/Birthday gift from my eldest daughter and will be a real treat.
I have wanted to visit this garden for a long time, but not really had the opportunity for the last few years in particular.
I have been having a look on the internet and this is their website but I also found this blog which I thought was very interesting particularly as there is a translator on the left so that I can translate to English and read as well as enjoy the photos.
So no pretty pictures from me today you will have to visit the above link instead.

I wish to visit the place too, but a little bit too far... ~bangchikReplyDelete
Always wanted to do that, probably never will.ReplyDelete
Such a cumbersome journey. You'll take the train, will you? (No snow on the line by then :-)
It looks like a wonderful place to visit, such an amazing present!ReplyDelete
Oh, I have always wanted to visit. So, don't worry about not having any pictures today....we will be looking forward to you posting pictures in the future of your trip :^)ReplyDelete
Les Jardins de Giverny! Can I say I am envious! Wow! I was born and raised in France and would love to go back and visit.ReplyDelete
I have no doubt you will thoroughly enjoy yourself and this "jadin"! :-)
You have a kind and gracious daughter to give you such a wonderful gift.
Please bring back many photos so you can share.

What a wonderful present Joanne and the perfect time of year to go. Look forward to hearing all about in due course and seeing lots of photos :)ReplyDelete
How exciting!!! TaKe tons of pictures for us! I would love to someday go!ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone so all I need to do then is enjoy myself and make sure my camera is charged and ready for May then. Who would have believed 4/5 years ago I had difficulty standing and walking across a room and now I can trip off to France.ReplyDelete
So glad you are able to go to Monet's garden.I have a video of it that I watch a few times a year. I would love to go too!
What beautiful gardens - I'm so envious. Enjoy your visit there and I know you'll bring back lots of beautiful pictures for us to enjoy.ReplyDelete
Love the orchid photos in the last post. Our local garden centre was selling orchids very cheaply just before Christmas and had hundreds. I went back after Christmas but had missed out as they had sold every one. Lesson learned!ReplyDelete
Hi Joanne, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that you've got one generous daughter!!ReplyDelete
I don't think anyone could pull off a pink house quite like Monsieur Monet has done.
Have fun on the tour.
What an exciting gift. Can't wait to hear all about it!ReplyDelete
You'll love it. My grandmother was born their and spent the war growing up on a little farm close by. I haven't been back since my great auntie, her sister, died.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful time.
Joanne, what an amazing gift. Can't wait to hear all about it! I hope that you have fun, take lots and lots of pictures.ReplyDelete
