Spring: Women in an Iris Garden - Handsome scene of beauties enjoying a spring stroll through an iris garden. In the center, two women pause at the water's edge, bending close to examine the colorful purple and lavender blossoms. Another woman walks across a small earthen bridge, lifting the hem of her blue and white print kimono as she walks. Other beauties watch from a verandah at right, smiling and chatting. A lovely landscape setting, attractively colored.
