It's blocked by the structure of the bridge and the trees allows the people some shade while enjoying the water. The lines and shapes communicate well with the colors. From the window, two ships were seen passing under the bridge one with the Emperor on the back of a horse.

For whose respect was this flower grown for. The flower looks as if its dieing out. The stems are thin and the buds appear to have fallen off.

Every good thing will eventually come to an end, is its meaning. This is a balanced picture with one main focal point. The lines of the organic work together with the colors and shapes of the flower. Outside the window, sat a cyclamen plant on whose grave will it produce more.
