Day 6: Giverny (2)

When we arrived at Giverny, we joined our guides for the short walk into the gardens from the parking lot.

Guide at Giverny

Our group's guide bore a remarkable resemblance to Lynn Redgrave.

Gardener and water lilies at Giverny

Our tour began in the Water Garden, where a gardener was tending the water lilies from a flat-bottomed boat.

The Water Garden was begun in 1893, or 10 years after Claude Monet moved to Giverny.

Bridge in Giverny water garden

The Japanese Bridge, which came later, was inspired by Monet's fascination with Japanese prints.

This tourist's beard appeared to have been inspired by Claude Monet (inset photo).

Water lilies at Giverny

The garden's signature water lilies were closed when we arrived. (By the time we left, they'd opened up.)

Berries in Water Garden at Giverny

These berries in the Water Garden looked inviting, but we resisted the temptation to pick a handful when nobody was looking.
