Its several years now since I was fortunate enough to visit Monet's Garden in Giverny, France. It was not at its most spectacular when we did, but I bought a book about color co-ordination schemes etc. and keep it in mind when I choose plants for our garden. This is gorgeous! My particular favorites are the blues and purples, reds and pinks punctuated with a little white - quite spectacular wouldn't you agree?
I've never been one for flashy colours - keep those yellows and oranges out please! I like the softer shades, that blend and seep into one another without really noticing. No surprise then that I love watercolor paintings especially those of the Impressionists!!
We are still way, way off creating our garden as we wish it to be, but the beginning has been made.
