Of all the gorgeous things I saw at Clos Normand, Claude Monet’s house in Giverny, his water lily pond was perhaps my favorite. Surrounded by bamboo thickets and weeping willow trees, the serene pond is flanked by Monet’s old, green rowboat at one end and the Japanese foot bridge at the other.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?
Lily Pond Photo #1. Monet’s old, green rowboat surrounded by bamboo thickets. He used to use the rowboat as a floating studio and paint from the water.
Lily Pond Photo #2. In addition to the lilies floating on the pond, the pond is surrounded by all sorts of flowers like these black-eyed susans.
Lily Pond Photo #3. The head of the Foundation Claude Monet Giverny, Hughes Gall, said of the lily pond, “It’s a mythical place.” I couldn’t agree more!
