Description

A branching vine extends from the middle right, growing downward and making a sharp vertical arch. Green-blue leaves and orange-yellow blooms and buds decorate the branch. A small swallow sits on top of a branch towards the left corner. Two small Chinese characters are in the middle of the right edge of the painting just above the start of the branch, followed by a red seal.
