Now that I have been home from France as long as I was there I am ready to close the chapter on the blog posts about it! So today I share the final chapter…
On nature…potted plants outside a shop on the streets of Conflans.
The following were all taken in Giverny at Monet’s garden. It was both calming and striking despite the droves of people passing through.
and of course the famous water lilies and weeping willows …
and my two personal favorites…spiritual love
and a portion of patisserie/boulangerie..
graffiti also makes for a wonderful reflection…all the Parisian graffiti was contained to the walls along the river.
Also I decided while there that I would like to take my sewing machine and my dog and go live on a houseboat on the Seine. My husband thought it far too spontaneous and stupid an idea; so he could stay home and live the practical life.
Any one of these houseboats and barges would work for Millie and me just fine.
Since our return I have been in the studio designing new work and prepping for a lecture I am presenting soon at a conference in Denver. France is but a memory but a really awesome one at that…
