Now. It is time. Let me explain: We traveled to Paris four months ago and then I started a new work schedule, and then the kids’ gruelling swimming and Irish dancing schedules kicked in and life in general has just kept me all too busy to write about our wonderful trip to Monet’s garden. But now, following the terrible events in Paris on Friday the 13th of November, the situation has presented itself to me that to write about Monet’s garden will in some small way connect me to the people of Paris. There is too much beauty in our world to let the ugly acts of a few destroy that. So please, come with me on a little escape into the beautiful world of Monet’s Gardens…
I enjoyed the water gardens immensely. There was something peaceful and beautiful in that experience, despite being surrounded by many, many people!
I love the water.
Before touring a different section of the gardens, here are a few pictures from the inside of Monet’ house.
This room housed many copies of the artist’s work. There was a large, lovely window looking out into the gardens, as well.
Color played an important role in the house, as can be noted in the (quite) yellow dining room.
The blue tiles in the working kitchen were my favorite, though.
Let me now welcome you into the gardens at the front of the house.
The house is pink. Truly pink… with green shutters. 🙂
There are sad times in our world today. But I hope we don’t stop showing compassion and love for one another, or stop enjoying the beauty which is all around us. Our prayers are of course with all of those affected by terrorism.
With Love and In Peace,
