Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Monet’s Garden

with one comment

A new exhibit opens at the Vancouver Art Gallery today entitled “Monet’s Secret Garden” – here’s the Courier’s review. The first thought that crossed my mind was that there is not much secret about his garden. It’s in Giverny, Normandy and is about 45 minutes on the train from Paris, and is one of the most popular of the sites we visited back in 2012. Both the house and garden are open to the public and even in May it was crowded. Even so, very much worth the time. We also saw his paintings at the Marmottan and in the huge galleries off the Tuileries. I did put up a small album of some of my favorite shots on flickr, but I thought that this would be a good excuse to publish some of the others.
