We visited Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. Anyone who loves gardens can understand how Monet felt.
We’ve visited many acclaimed gardens on our travels – Longwood in Pennsylvania, Filoli in California, Busch in Vancouver. What we loved about these gardens is also their drawback: everything is accomplished on a huge scale featuring flowering banks filled with hundreds of the same plant, water features, massive old trees.
Fast forward to April when we visited a different kind of garden in Sacramento, CA. The garden’s scale was far from grand. We found intimate spaces with plantings that reflected a thoughtful plan and artful personal touches.
As we sat in the garden – enjoying the view – we agreed that Jeannie (with help and support from husband Dale) created her most beautiful masterpiece.
