A man in the image below is a gardener and artist Gilbert Vahé who manages the existing Monet's garden.



Vahé has managed the garden of Monet for over 40 years.



It is a garden made in 1883, but after World War II, there were no managers to be abandoned.



After that, in the 1970s, gardeners were to be called for restoration.



Vahé came to the garden for the first time in 1976. Back then, the garden was desolated and gardeners needed to recreate Monet's garden.



It is said that Giverny 's Monet' s garden opening time is closed from April to October and winter is closed, but by restoration, beautiful colorful flowers will bloom now in warm time.



Originally, Mr. Vahé was scheduled to remain in Monet 's garden for only 3-4 weeks, but he still retires in Monet' s garden even though she retires.



As to why he keeps staying in Monet's garden, Vahé says, "Monet's garden is very famous and it is not the reason that 600,000 people visit each year."



In Monet's garden there are 10 full-time gardeners working ... ...



Retired Vahé is able to visit the garden as she likes.



Vahé lives next to Monet's garden, so it is easy to visit physically.



Since the gardener follows the sun rhythm, the summer starts at 7 o'clock on the first day. Leave home ......

As an important work for the gardener, Mr. Vahé cited restoring the vandalised place of visitors, cutting flowers weakened in beauty, enriching soil and watering.

It removes extra things in the water and preserves the beauty like a painting.



Originally Vahé was not familiar with Monet, but he said that he knew about Monet through the garden. It was flowers that Mr. Vahé first appeared attractive, but gradually he knew about Monet, he liked Monet.



I found something and thought that I reached out to the grass, I removed the wilted part.



Given the impact Monet had on history, the job of keeping the garden is very important. Vahé said that the garden was his fate.



Since 2000, " Kitagawa Village Monet's Garden Marmottan " which reproduced Monet's garden in Kochi prefecture under the guidance of Vahé is open.
