The Monet Waterlily Festival at Gibbs Gardens is also a celebration of French culture. They had many fleur-de-lis and French tri-color flags fluttering in the breeze. Along the main walkway that leads to the waterlily gardens, there were also two iconic French characters, a Mime and an Accordion player.
I have not yet visited France but this certainly brought to mind all the Hollywood representations of the country. I’m sure they have mimes and accordions on every street corner, right? When I finally get the chance to go there, I will be severely disappointed if this isn’t true!
