Claude Monet’s water garden
At the end of the 19th century, the gardens of Giverny were divided into two parts, the Clos Normand around the house, and the water garden on the other side of the railway. In this area, Claude Monet had a pond dug by diverting the ‘ru de l’Epte’. The painter planted there exotic varieties such as bamboo, ginkgo biloba, maple, and Japanese peonies.
