I love Monet's paintings, and have spent quite a bit of time in a museum in Paris, looking deeply in to his paintings of his pond at Giverny.
I like this quote of his, giving directions to his head gardener in February 1900.
Maybe this will inspire us all today.
"Sow approximately 300 pots of poppies, 60 pots of sweet peas, approximately 60 pots of white argemone and 30 yellow... From the 15th to the 25th start the dahlias into growth. Take cuttings from the shoots before my return; think about the lily bulbs."
It would be grand to have a gardener in my employ! Then I could ask them what argemone is.
