This month’s Travel Photo Friday is a lovely shot in Monet’s garden submitted by reader Darlene Wade. Darlene writes this about her photo:
“In September 2009, I went to Paris for the first time to fulfill my heart’s longing for over 15 years. On my 7th day, I went to Giverny. It was a gorgeous September day with cornflower blue skies and flowers in bloom everywhere.
As I strolled the village of Giverny, walked through the rooms of Monet’s home, and then his gardens & lily pond, I had to pinch myself that I was walking in the exact places that this master artist walked and lived.
It is the exact same path with Monet’s house in the background as his painting The Garden at Vetheuil. I couldn’t believe the garden was so full of bright colors at the end of September. I was in Monet heaven!”
