Monet's Garden

Japanese Bridge, Monet's Garden, Giverny

Elmo was fortunate to work in Paris for a few months last year. Poor Elmo: all those pastries, art, FOOD, weekend trips around Europe, and did I mention FOOD? Of course, I was supremely jealous of all the eating, so I joined him towards the end of his stay. 

One of the absolute highlights was visiting Claude Monet's house and garden at Giverny. It was wonderful to see Monet's studio and personal art collection (also his amazing kitchen and cookware). And while the garden was lovely in the overcast morning, when the sun finally emerged in the afternoon, it was absolutely stunning.
