Welcome to day twelve of my rose challenge. It's getting to be a habit now and I take my camera everywhere I go. I found this one on my morning walk yesterday. It took me a while to figure out what it was, but I think I'm right in saying it's Claude Monet. I like Claude, both the rose and the man. I've always admired his art and I was very impressed with his home and garden at Giverny. When we visited there exactly eight years ago, I had the BEST goat cheese salad at the Museum of American Art just down the street. It had rounds of broiled goat cheese on slices of baguette, arranged around a salad of baby greens with tomatoes, apples, and walnuts. Here's a photo of it:
What great memories I have of France, Giverny, and Monet. I really think I need one of these roses.
