  • Giverny Beauties
    Spring makes us all want to walk in beautiful gardens. At Giverny, azaleas and tulips gradually give way to irises, peonies and wisterias. The first water lilies should open within two weeks, recreating once more Monet’s beautiful setting and endless source of inspiration.   In the flower garden, visitors meander inside of a living painting […]

He loved their elegant white flowers popping out against a beautiful green foliage. On the photos taken in his times, simple white Japanese anemones can […]

  • Yews
    Seen from Monet’s bedroom, these two imposing trees are yews. They were not planted by Claude Monet: they are older. He found them when he arrived at Giverny. They appear on old photos, although we don’t know of any pic that is from the eighteen eighties. The garden became the focus of photographers after its […]

    The blooming of hyacinths is the sign that Spring has arrived at last. In Monet’s garden they are planted by hundreds. They are beautiful for their colors ranging from white to pale yellow, pink, purple, blue and even almost black, but to tell the truth it is their scent that makes them irresistible. If we […]

  • The Tulips of Giverny
    The name of Monet and his garden at Giverny evoke specific flowers: water lilies, wisterias, irises in large rows… It rarely brings up images of tulips. The big tulip show of April is a surprise to many visitors.  Tulips in Monet’s times were not yet what they are now, but Monet planted them and painted […]

  • Do Foxes Wear Gloves?
    Monet’ house at Giverny, mid-May. Click to enlarge.  Some flower names sound really strange, like foxgloves. These tall and beautiful flowers (also called digitalis) photographed here at the top of the main alley in Claude Monet’s flower garden like the shade of the two old yews. Under the dark branches, they feel at home, as […]
