This ‘Remarkable Gardens of France’ location, which was designed by the landscape gardener, Mark Rudkin has some fabulous theme-related flowerbeds which were directly inspired by some of the Impressionist paintings on display in the museum. This very structured and contemporary garden is made up of symmetrical rows of one-coloured square-shaped flowerbeds which are separated by hedgerows of alternating beech trees and emerald conifers. The ground is separated into ‘rooms’ – warm-coloured and cold-coloured ones.
In the garden’s west side a viewpoint overlooking the Giverny hillside awaits you. There are some flowerbeds and also an area of wild plants, known as ‘mad gardens’ before you come to a field full of poppies. This poppy field which may be seen from one of the museum windows is a strong tribute to subject matter which was dear to the Impressionists.
