The breath taking Garden grounds of Château de Versailles

Though I took these photos while walking through the garden grounds of Château de Versailles, in the far corners of my mind, I am taken back to a place called ‘Plumfield’, a place where 10 year old Annie ‘Nan’ Harding grew up. From the beautiful blue sky, the foliage and the pathways, an image like this can only bring back nostalgic memories of your favorite books growing up.

Truly, to read is to travel, giving one the sense of ‘I’ve been here before…’. Beauty has a way of inspiring and bringing back memories. #chateauversailles Château de Versailles

Breathtaking Monet

Impressionism speaks to me because of its softness and serenity. Everything about it seems almost breathtaking.

Claude Monet uses elements that I love the most: flowers, nature, sunlight.

I can offer no words that can do justice for his work.
