Giverny is a fun garden to visit. I
have been there several times and the spring is my favorite
time. Try to get there at opening time and go immediately
under the road to the pond area. If you are lucky, you will
get a few shots of the famous bridge with the wisteria draped
over it before a steady stream of tourists enter the scene. In
the spring, the
tulips and other early flowers lend a soft
feeling to the gardens. Once you get in, don't leave since
they won't let you back in even if you have your ticket.
An easy stroll down the street
is the American Museum which also has some interesting
plantings in the front area. You can get lunch there and see
the collection after you leave Monet's house.
