Monet Gardens Giverny

Making full use of his creativity Claude Monet diverted an arm of the river to create a pond now called the Jardin d’eau. To beautify the scenery, even more, he built a Japanese bridge (Pont Japonais) but painted it green to create a difference. The refection of the green bridge, colorful ornamentals, white clouds, and the blue sky is certainly not something you would want to miss. Maples, bamboo, Japanese peonies, willow trees, the admirable water lilies, metal archways will give you a majestic experience. Get more informations about Monet gardens
