We took a train out of Paris to visit Giverny where Monet's home and garden are located. All I can say is WOW! The gardens were all arranged in color patterns and the flowers were all blooming. We were able to walk through his home and see his bed, his dinner dishes and his studio. It was a very special experience to be able to sit on a bench by Monet's waterlily pond and do some quick paintings of his famous Japanese bridge.
