This completely revised edition of Elizabeth Murray’s best-selling book Monet's Passion, offers new text, new images, and new garden plans based on Claude Monet’s spectacular gardens at Giverny.
A professional gardener and artist, Murray helped to restore the Giverny gardens in the 1980s and has since enjoyed privileged access to the site. In this updated edition, Murray discusses the development and history of Monet’s Giverny estate and brings new insight to Monet’s approach to gardening and design. Murray’s lush photographs chronicle the present-day gardens, and a section titled “Bringing Giverny Home” provides detailed Giverny-based garden plans that can be executed anywhere. Full-color illustrations of the gardens, a list of the plants originally used by Monet, and a plant cultivation section round out this immensely helpful guide to creating year-round beauty in one’s own backyard.
