The description of nature
The author describes the romantic and unusual beauty of the nature in the city Avonlea. “Its windows looked east and west; through the west one, looking out on the back yard, came a flood of mellow June sunlight; but the east one, whence you got a glimpse of the bloom white cherry-trees in the left orchard and nodding, slender birches down in the hollow by the brook, was greened over by a tangle of vines. » Trees, plants and flowers inspire Anne and she becomes to love it at first sight.
The white color prevails in this story. When Anne arrives to Avonlea, the trees are laden with the white blossom near the house. The snowy orchids beautify her room. Anne also likes dresses of white color. This color means a purity and quiet place.
The relationship between Gilbert Blythe and Anne Shirley
«When school was dismissed Anne marched out with her red head held high. Gilbert Blythe tried to intercept her at the porch door. "I'm awfully sorry I made fun of your hair, Anne", he whispered contritely. "Honest I am. Don't be mad for keeps, now. " We can see that the relationships are unusual between Anne and Gilbert. Firstly, they hate each other and Gilbert always tugs by Anne’s red hair. But at the end of this story, they become best friends.
