Before a series of winter paintings, the painting was probably made in May 1884. It depicts a garden with dark clothes in the foreground and the ruins of an ancient church in the distance. It is also depicted in works such as Nuenen's Old Church Tower at Nuenen. The green and red touches in the painting indicate that winter has passed and spring has begun.
