The horizon is about 2/5th up from the bottom. The ground is a sandy beige-grey-green with the trees rendered in similar tones. The blooms are white and have a mist-like appearance. The sky is light blue with white soft undefined clouds.

“Speaking of Emil Carlsen, there was a large canvas, showing a single old apple-tree in blossom. It was a bit of delicate color, creamy pink upon a delicate fresh green ground, but it did not look like the real thing.”

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Brooklyn, NY, “Fine Arts.  Twenty-sixth Exhibition of the American Artists’ Society“, March 30, 1904, Page 5.
“…Emil Carlsen has turned from still life to landscape and gives an orchard in bloom that is so pale as to suggest snow, but his Connecticut Hilltop-three orange and yellow trees-is higher and warm in key.”
