JUNE: Memories of Claude Monet in Normandy



Just turned over my 2015 Calendar to show a picture of Claude Monet’s ‘Le jardin de l’artiste, à Giverny’, 1900.

The foreground is smothered in irises, which were his favourite flower. I had the pleasure of visiting his garden last year while on a short holiday in Normandy.

A stunning floral display with a charming house that is also open to the public, and, of course, the famous waterlilies. The house, which often goes unmentioned, has a beautiful interior with many japanese prints hanging on the walls. Monet bought the house & gardens in 1883 and lived there until he died in 1926.
