Saturday Photo: Sun on Monet's Pond

Several times over the last decade we've been in the middle of preparing to go to France for a while. I'd love to be doing that right now, but there are too many things to do here to travel.

So what I've begun to do is look through my old travel photos as a not-very-adequate substitute. This one, taken in Monet's garden at Giverny, seems particularly approriate. We're still a long way from having blooming iris (mine usually flower in late June) but I love the way the light on new leaves has been spectacular this week.

As for the rowboat in the background, it appears to be the direct descendant of the ones that Monet painted at Giverny
