The Garden of Claude Monet

First, a little background information provided on-sight.

Nestled against the hillside, the Musée des Impressionnismes, Giverny blends harmoniously with its surroundings.When designing the museum,architect Philip Robert laid out the garden that was later completed by landscape architect Mark Rudkin. An arbor of white wisteria invites visitors to enter, while paying homage to Monet.The garden features a series of lush rooms created by thuya and beech hedges. Each room is either thematic(aromatic plants, roses, etc.) or monochromatic (which represent the primary colors). Seasonal plantingsrenew the garden from spring through autumn in keeping with this concept. These colourful and fragrant spaceslead from the foundtain to the meadow and opens to the gentle slope of the hillside that inspired numerousimpressionist paintings.

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
