Gardens

I went to Versailles to visit the gardens on Friday, and yesterday I went to Giverny to visit Monet's garden. Two different looks, lol.
Here is Versailles (one of the many gardens there)



And here is Monet's garden - a blowsy, wild, mix of color.



Guess which effect I'm aiming for in my garden? LOL! Here is my front garden:

Mmm, what gorgeous pictures! Of course, you always post the most delicious photos, Sam. The gardens are lovely--and, yes, that includes yours too! ;-)

Just read your Thursday Thirteen and LOVED it. Made me miss our little dog.

Your garden is gorgeous. I'm filled with envy. (should be greeeen with envy. Get it? Green? Garden? never mind.)

It really is lovely.

Nice pictures, Sam! I went to Versailles when I was 17, but I'm afraid I didn't appreciate it as much as I probably should have. I was with a school group, but my mom chaperoned. As with much of the trip, I hung out with Mom and we had a fun morning wandering through town and such after exploring the Chateau.

All three of the gardens are wonderful, eaach in their own unique way. I loved visiting Versailles when I was in Paris.
