The female muse wears a beautiful, classical green dress and has golden clasps on each of her biceps. A small display of red comes from a second layer of clothing that she wears beneath her dress and it sneaks out around her arms. There are small golden linings which make their way across her neckline. Small, subtle floral patterns can also be found on her dress, though not in a way that clashes from the real flowers that she holds in her bowl. Perhaps she has just collected them from her garden and returns to arrange them in her house? There is also a small detail in the back of her hair which one can only just make out from the window behind.
This painting was immediately sent to the Royal Academy in 1908, the year in which he complete it, as well as several other artworks of the same name. Others versions included a brunette within a garden, though that one was never fully finished. Perhaps he tried out several ideas and eventually decided that the work found in this page was the one that most deserved to be perserved with. It is hard to disagree when we see such as beautiful artwork as this sat before us.
There are many charming features to this painting, from the small bowl of flowers which are centred within the composition, to the calming expression of the young lady and the stunning detail on the window behind her. There are coat of arms featured alongside an ornate display of craftsmanship though the artist is careful to avoid too much light saturating the main foreground of the painting. He often used fairly dark shadows within his paintings that accurately captures the combination of the British climate and also the style of centuries-old cottages, where windows were often fairly small.
