My (Cathy) favorite place in all of France is Monet's garden at Giverny. He spent years creating it and then happily painted it for the rest of his life. For flower lovers it is paradise, particularly on a glorious June day.
We are Cathy, Mark, Annie, Brennan, and Nate (and assorted pets), keeping an account of our life and travels. Cathy is the primary writer, though she hopes she gets some help from the rest of the clan!
