I will let the photos speak for themselves but the colours, textures, reflections and planting make this such an inspiring garden no wonder Monet enjoyed painting there so much.
Yes the dreaded Japanese Knot weed at least that is one invasive plant I have so far avoided in my garden. There is a glimpse of Monet's house in the background. The garden is in a valley with lovely hillsides either side.
The above photograph was taken by Rachel and it is so easy to see why Monet painted in the style he did when looking at this view.
It started to rain as we neared the end of our walk around Monet's Water Garden but loved these two little boats moored.
As umbrellas unfurled I couldn't resist taking this photo of the bridge with the haziness the rain made the photo I felt it was truly Monet style.
Umbrellas can be useful to keep the rain off the camera whilst still taking photographs although it can be quite a juggling act but this lovely pink Cornus said goodbye to us as we left this lovely garden.
I hope you all enjoyed your visit with me. If you look at the post before this you will find links into Monet's garden and a blog link about it.
