J'étais dans cette petite église sympa d'Angers pour une cérémonie de baptême. C'était agréable : on fait participer le public aux chants de la chorale, le prêtre qui allait plus tard à la cérémonie de béatification en Algérie (décidée par le pape) annonçait qu'il continuerait à soutenir les gens en prière. Il y a une organisation dès l'entrée où l'on oriente les véhicules vers des stationnements dédiés comme les places de parking prévues pour des personnes âgées en priorité et celles pour le tout public

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
