Postcards From Readers: Monet’s garden bursts with color

The photographer: Cindy Philpott of Sacramento

Behind the lens: On a trip through Europe with my mom, we managed to visit quite a few amazing gardens. Claude Monet’s garden in Giverney, France, was simply stunning. Wandering through the lush pathways with each turn, my impression was that I had stepped into one of the pages of the artist’s many books. Amazingly wild, yet beautifully manicured, the garden was bursting with bright, vibrant colors. Monet’s house stands in the distance, lovingly painted in dusty pink with its distinctive green shutters, and seemed to rise above the lush blanket of beautiful blooms.
