Watch my short Video from Monet's Garden.

Are you all ready - then let us begin -


We begin at Monet's House Giverny in France  - where he lived and where his Garden and lakes are which was an inspiration for his paintings

Now - lets have a closer look at some of these wonderful Flowers in Monet's Garden









Well - Certainly a showing here too, and its here all the year round, different seasons - different showing to see.

A little stroll through the tunnel (under the main road) then a sight to behold - Monet's Lake and Water Lilies - Lets walk around the Lake - shall we? follow me then please  --

I cannot imagine being surround with the beauty I see here...especially in Monet's Garden. These are spectacular photographs, Stewart!
As I look at your header, I can only imagine that the butterflies, bees, and birds are in their own heaven. Which way to turn...which way to go next. Beauty all around.
Lovely, as always my dear friend....

Great minds do indeed think alike! Lovely post and photos. Claude Monet has always been a favourite artist of mine.

RuneE said...

You (and Monet - or his gardner?) - did a great job here. The flowers come popping out of my screen!

George said...

Your photos are every bit as beautiful Monet's paintings. I don't know how you were able to pick a single photo to use as a header. I hope you are able to attend Chelsea sometime in the future.

Mac: You had as much inspiration as Monet. What great captures.

Craver Vii said...

What a gorgeous place! I especially like the closeups, and it has always amused me to see the tiny bugs on the flower pics. I don't always like bugs, but I usually like them in flower photos.
