Some Blossom Paintings...

And here are some paintings of trees in blossom. The first three are by the very English mystical/romantic painter Samuel Palmer, painted in his beloved village of Shoreham circa 1829 to 1831. The next ones are by the Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, painted in Arles and Saint-Remy in France between 1888 and 1890. Both painters were obsessive in their intense love of nature.
