France Trip Day 13 - 6/28 - Monet's Garden, Givervy

 This morning we head off for Monet's Garden where he lived and painted.  I'm looking forward to seeing it again!  I love the pond and the water lilies and the green boat and the bridge, as well as, all the flowers.

We did have to wait in line for about 30 minutes to get our tickets.

As we parked our car I thought it was awfully nice to see the USA flag flying.

So after getting lots of ideas of plants to get for our gardens we left Giverney.

As we left I had to take pictures of the fields even if it was through the window glass.  They reminded me of Monet's paintings of the haystacks!
Now, on to Paris.....this is going to be stressful!
