"..for one's health, as you say, it is very necessary to work in the garden and to see the flowers growing.
I myself am quite absorbed in that immense plain with wheat fields up as far as the hills, boundless as the ocean, delicate yellow, delicate soft green, the delicate purple of a tilled and weeded piece of ground, with the regular speckle of the green of flowering potato plants, everything under a sky of delicate tones of blue, white, pink and violet. I am in a mood of almost too much calm, just the mood needed for painting this." - Vincent van Gogh to his Mother and Sister. Auvers-sur-Oise. Jul 10-14, 1890.
