  • Animation Bump: In between shots when they're in the art museum and Monet's house, they switch from the actual animation to either a photograph of Monet's paintings or live action footage of the garden.
  • Constantly Curious: Linnea always ask questions about Monet and everything what's going on, with Mr. Bloom gladly answering her questions.
  • Framing Device: The story opens and ends with Linnea talking to the viewers what happened when both she and Mr. Bloom visited France.
