giverny is a living painting

I went to visit the village that became famous as the location of Claude Monet’s garden and home on a rainy day of summer a couple of years ago. Then this post has been procrastinated for so long because I couldn’t choose between the thousand of pictures I took there: everything in this place is so aesthetic that it looks like a photographic setting,

it really breathes art and beauty.

I was invited by a parisian girl I just met the day before to join her and an art-loving couple of friends for a birthday-surprise picnic in Giverny: isn’t this more than welcoming after just a month in Paris? We shared this wonderful day (the rain didn’t bother us much) and became friends: I feel so lucky to have met such great people here :)

These below are some corners of the Clos Normand, Monet’s garden.

I really can’t imagine how much gardening work it may demand keeping all these plants and flowers in such perfect condition.

The Water Garden host the famous water lilies that are captured on so many Monet’s paintings.

Walking through Monet’s house and garden made us feel like we were becoming part of an impressionist artwork,

then on the way back home we realized how even the little streets around the village are invaded by flamboyant flowers: there must be some magic going on in Giverny.
