After seeing these gardens, I knew how impressionism started. I also knew why he painted water lilies so many times. They are absolutely stunning.
The famous bridge...the hard part was finding a time when there were not a zillion people on it!
More water lilies..this time with a person in a boat. His job was to keep the pond clean.
It’s the perfect place to just sit down and “smell the roses”...problem is there are not many roses...just lots of other flowers.
On the perimeter of the garden is a narrow stream.
Then there are the flowers. I took 260 pictures in these gardens alone...so this is a small sample of what is there. Honest...I did take time to look at the pretty around me too.
Even the bees think the flowers are cool.
Sometimes a perfect flower has a little imperfection.
I have no idea what this flower is, but this gaudy bloom sure attracted my attention.
Now, I’m going to process some more pictures...so watch this space.
