Giverny, France

A true fairytale setting. Designed by Claude Monet, this oriental garden was the setting for many of his famous paintings. I visited in late spring when many of the flowers were in full bloom and although it was overcast and rainy, the garden truly was inspirational and had such a dreamlike feel to it.
