Summary

A scene of a young woman and child in a field of tall grasses, picking flowers. The woman is dressed in a pale, long dress, and a large hat with a purple ribbon around it hiding her face. She leans forward to give the child another flower to add to his bunch. The blonde child is holding a bunch of white flowers and is wearing a blue smock. The foreground is filled with brightly coloured flowers, and the background is all green foliage.
