and His Home in Giverny
I’ve been asked many times in the last few days about my trip and what I enjoyed most. I don’t know how to narrow down the list because I loved everything. Even the Metro was a huge challenge, but my amazing daughter figured it out and got us everywhere we wanted to go. We never cabbed it except when we had to be at the train station at 7:00 am for our trip to Belgium. We would have done fine on the subway but, me being the worry wart that I am, opted for a cab so neither of us would stress out before the next leg of our trip.
We wanted to take one day trip out of Paris and, although Versailles was our original choice, we decided on Giverny because we were told that the lilacs and wisteria were in bloom in addition to azaleas, rhoddies, bulbs and early perennials. I’m sure I will return to Paris one day but maybe never at this time of year and I didn’t want to miss the Spring show. Breathtaking is the only word that suits the scene.
I’ll show you more photos of the grounds in a future post. We weren’t allowed to photograph the interior of his home which was disappointing because it was so interesting and beautiful. The little town of Giverny was right out of a picture book of the nineteenth century.
Happiest Mother’s Days wishes to all the moms, daughters, aunts, sisters, friends and neighbors in bloggie land. May all our lives be blessed.
