The house is gorgeous too, and I always love museums where you see the art in some sort of context, which the house does beautifully.  Don’t get me wrong, Versailles is outstanding, but there are places in Paris of a similar vintage and lavishness.  I’ve never been anywhere quite like Giverney.  What can I say?  I like to be in Giverney in an Impressionist’s garden in the shade.  (Sorry.)
