A trip to Monet's garden really is like stepping into Monet's paintings. With endless colour and the iconic bridges from Monet's most famous paintings.

This gorgeous photo makes me long for an end to this terrible cold and snowy weather. Won't it be marvellous when there's some colour in the garden again? We all enjoy our gardens in different ways; as you can see from this image, even our pets love to be out and about in the garden when the weather is nice. This photo was taken in Monet's garden in Giverny, located near Paris. If you love visiting gardens, then this is the ultimate one to visit. A trip to Monet's garden really is like stepping into Monet's paintings. With endless colour and the iconic bridges from Monet's most famous paintings, it's a relaxing idyll that will inspire artists and bring everyone a true feeling of peace and tranquillity. The house and gardens are open to the public from April until November. It's a great day out. If you're planning a trip to Paris, it's just 45 minutes ride on the train, and it's well worth making the effort. You'll create memories you'll never forget, but don't forget to take the camera! There's a shop and restaurant on site too so you can make a full day of it.
