Summertime

by Ariane ~ August 20, 2011

giverny-summerSummer is a gorgeous time in the gardens, especially at Giverny. While water lilies are at their best, the flower garden offers an explosion of colors.

Dahlias in every shapes and shades show their heads among the light butterfly like gauras, phlox and lavenders spread their scents, gladiolis bent graciously over the alleys, surrounded by sages and verbenas. The list of blooming flowers is endless.

Instead of carpeting the ground like in spring, summer flowers stand, tall, imposing and delicate at the same time, offering another experience of the garden.

    thank you for your beautiful blog. i was wondering if you could help me with a somewhat related question. do you know who sells the beautiful poster for the Monet Museum that features a landscape of the gardens. Painted in the background is a large yellow building. Thanks for your help in this matter. Isabel

    Is it a garden with a boy on stairs, and sunflowers around?

    Yes, this is an ad for Monet’s house and gardens (maison et jardin de Claude Monet) at Giverny.
