That's okay, I forgot to mention these are all Margaret Clough photos. Not only is she a gifted photographer but obviously well traveled and well cultured.

"The pond, supplied by the river Epte, is flanked by willows of Babylon with golden branches. The beds and the banks are decorated with masses of plants: heath-mould, ferns, kalmias, rhododendrons, azaleas and holly. The edges of the water are shaded by densely grown rosebushes and the pond itself is planted with every known variety of water lilies...A large bamboo plantation forms a dense woods. There are petasites with enormous leaves on the water's edge, thalictrums with jagged edges on the lawns, certain ferns with pink or white downy flowers, wisteria...There are also tamarisks and long-stemmed roses and rosebushes scattered over the whole area." (Georges Truffaut) In 1893 Monet bought the land situated opposite his house and garden, the Clos Normand, on the other side of the railway tracks, beyond a tiny branch of the Epte, the Ru. Monet had the stream diverted and dug a pond almost 20 metres deep. In his application for planning permission his letter stated that "It's only a question here of pleasure, of pleasing the eyes and having subjects to paint."
