Letter from Giverny

In French class this semester we’ve learned the phrase, “à quoi servir” and “à quoi ressemble”.  In other words, “what purpose does it serve…” or “what resembles something or other…“.  An example of this would be, ”à quoi ressemble ce nuage?“  (What does this cloud resemble?)

On my recent trip to Normandy, we spent a morning at Giverny, home to Claude Monet and his second wife Alice from the early 1890s until his death.  I stood in his gardens behind the house and was amazed by how similar the pond and garden looked to his paintings that I’ve seen all my life.  Here’s some photos from that morning.
