Van Gogh mentions his Blossoming Almond Branch painting in one of his many letters to his brother Theo. When he arrived in Arles there was still snow on the ground. On 2 March, a little more than a week later, he wrote to his brother, 'There’s a hard frost here, and out in the country there’s still snow — I have a study of a whitened landscape with the town in the background. And then 2 little studies of a branch of an almond tree that’s already in flower despite everything.'
