Monet’s Garden

Sorry it has been some time since I have posted.  I have been busy traveling with work and then had a nice weekend in Canada celebrating my parents’ fortieth wedding anniversary.

 

For the Memorial Day week-end, Mr. Spring and I decided to head to New York City to visit friends and his family.  While there we decided to do a variety of things.  One thing we did was to go to New York Botanical Gardens to see the recreation of Monet’s Garden at Giverny.

For anyone who is close or will be visiting the city, the exhibit is going to be at the Botanical Gardens till October.

Monet's GardenWe walked through a walkway of flowers, and it was just beautiful.  It was hard to see the whole view with all the people but here you can see the photos and pretend you were along.

    NYC is a lot easier to get to than France to enjoy Monet’s Garden. The garden looks beautiful, especially the water lilies. Have you ever read Monet’s Table (The Cooking Journals of Claude Monet) by Claire Joyes. It was published in 1989 and the pictures are wonderful. I adore his blue and yellow china. Best, Lisa
