It was such a dream come true to see Claude Monet's (1840 - 1826) house and garden. He is my favourite artist of all time and an incredible artist within the Impressionist movement, especially his Water Lilly Pond. Like many Swedish kids of my age, I grew up with the magical book Linnea i Målarens Trädgård which had such gorgeous illustrations depicting his garden. This book was a big part of why I wanted to visit his garden and I was not dissapointed by the real thing. The tulips, daffodils and cherry blossoms had all started blooming so that it was like a sea of colour intertwined with birds chirping and tourists's camera's clicking. If you ever have the chance to visit Monet's garden- I highly recommend you do so!
