Claude Monet, the famous impressionist painter, said that his most beautiful work of art was his garden in Giverny.

When I visited it one summer ago, however, I wasn’t impressed. I didn’t find it as breathtaking as the well-coiffured Versailles and Kew Gardens.

I hope it’s not too late to be like Monet, if not to paint, learn to see.
