Pink in Monet's Garden

I've missed Pink Saturday for several weeks. I've missed visiting you, too!

I thought I'd take you to Monet's Garden in Giverny, France (and hope that I didn't use any of these on my earlier post back in late June!)

Here's is Monet's house -- or rather, an upper window! All pink and green, like the garden!

You can't talk about Monet without mentioning water lilies!

At this time of year, pink was the predominant color -- well, next to green.

My favorite flowers were the pink poppies. I'd seen lots of red ones before, but none this color.

It was, indeed, a magical place.

I've saved a bit of Giverny (the town) for a future Pink Saturday. Meanwhile, for lots of other lovely pink things, please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

  1. Hello, Jeanie,
    I enjoyed my tour of Monet's gardens. They are just beautiful. The pink poppies are gorgeous. I am a gardener so I always enjoy a peek into another person's garden. I look forward to seeing more of Giverny. Have a good weekend. Vicki

  3. My favorite artist! I love the picture of the shuttered window surrounded by ivy. And, of course, the water lilies--not hard to see his inspiration! Thanks for sharing the pictures~
