The Next Best Thing: Monet’s Garden

It flew past me on a fast-moving bus. Monet’s Garden. But that’s all that was needed to entice my curiosity. Whatever it was I was going to try and get there. And indeed I did. Well, Monet’s Garden at The New York Botanical Garden that is. The show is a stunning recreation of the flowers that inspired Monet in creating his garden at Giverny, complete with a miniature Pont Japonaise. Poppies, hollyhock, foxglove, hydrangea, lupine, delphinium, roses, iris, wisteria, and of course, the famed water lilies. The color ranges and juxtapositions are marvelous. We can’t all jump on a plane to be inspired by Monet’s Giverny. However, if you find yourself in New York before October 21, I highly recommend a visit.
