The garden could look more organised at this point, but it’s blooming.

Claude Monet, gardener
In Giverny, Monet created a spectacular garden (1883-1926) that in no way can be compared with the much smaller and above all more conventional garden in Argenteuil nor with the garden in Vétheuil.
In this very special autochrome photograph, the already 81-years old Monet is posing in front of his house (and studio) in Giverny.

The empty spot on the lower left is where I hope to put cardinal flower and native columbine seed and hope for the best.
