The Gardens of Giverny - September 2019 FULL

In the autumn, Monet’s garden is transformed into a riotous dance of celebration. Join me to experience the tapestry of colors and textures that tower above you, mauve asters and crimson dahlias, golden sunflowers sprinkle gold, and the creeping nasturtiums are illuminated like stained glass, down the Grande Allee. You are invited to experience the brilliance of Monet and his extraordinary gardens in Giverny, France. Join me for an exceptional and unique artistic adventure.

THE GARDENS OF GIVERNY - September 2019 is currently FULL.

Elizabeth, your essence coupled with endless planning and details provided a unique, unparalleled experience. To commune with and create a daily relationship with Monet’s garden quickens this gardener’s heart.
