Of all the places we will be seeing during our adventure in France, going to Giverny and seeing the home and gardens of Claude Monet was the one I looked forward to most.
It wasn't a disappointment. We sailed into Vernon during the night, then this morning we took the bus to Giverny. The environment has altered dramatically from Paris and is more rural. The houses are small and quaint - no skyscrapers in sight.
Even though this isn't the prime season for flowers in the gardens, the spring flowers and flowering trees put on quite a show. Here is a view looking up to the famous pink and emerald green Monet house and some if the gardens.
