Description

Image of a figure in an interior. A woman is bending over and watering a potted plant at center. She is wearing a blue and white checkered kimono with a blue, pink and white piece of fabric wrapped around her waist. She is sanding on a square tile. There are two potted plants. The one closest to her looks like a pine bonsai tree. The plant next to it is in a taller blue container. It has taller branches and fewer, larger leaves. There is a screen wall and calligraphy in the top right quadrant. There is more foliage behind the woman to the left of the screen.
