On the lowermost of three broad stone steps, leaning against a wall over which climbs the tendrils of a vine, is shown a lassie with a pigeon perched on her left hand. She wears roses in her hair, under her straw hat, with its long red ribbons flowing behind, and her costume consists of a white blouse, blue skirt, deep red petticoat and green belt. Two other pigeons strut on the step at her feet, and a white dog is jumping up at her. Behind her on the steps, lies a wooden tub. A stone-built house, around which numerous pigeons are flying, stands in the background, and on the hills that rise to the right appear other houses.
