The weather may have been throwing its worst at us this week, but we don't mind, a pair of boots, a hat and we are still game to get out and about.
When I visited Giverny last week, I was a little too early for my favourite season when the irises and peonies are on show.
But the lily pond looked calm and magical, and the gardens were a riot of colour with all the spring flowers.
The tulips were magnificent, and by their thousands!
And peonies in bud, are really almost as stunning as fully opened.
I'll just have to go back next week! If you 've already been to Giverny, do you have a favourite moment of the year?
