What if you have seen it before, ten thousand times over? An apple tree in full blossom is like a message, sent fresh from heaven to earth, of purity and beauty.

At first I thought the colour was slightly off, but then I did a search and was surprised to see that apple blossoms range from red right through to white, and all in between  :o  Yours fits one of them  ;) [size=78%]  [/size]

Thank you so much Dennis, Emma Lee!
I think so, too, that I have used a bit too much of violett. Mainly they are pinkish, I think. But I am glad that there are apple blossoms like these. Thanks for your research, Dennis! 👍🏼

 :thankyou: Dennis. I had bought multiple singular colours from „white nights“ a couple of years ago.
I do not know the exact name of the colours, but these are the shades I used..

Cheers, Gita

The top red looks like Cad Red and the lower one looks like Quinacridone magenta.  The cad red with blue will result in a dull violet while the magenta and blue will result in a brighter violet. Do a few experiments.
