An intimate, sentimental scene of a young man and woman alone in a suburban garden in front of an ornate covered porch. The young woman is dressed in white, and sits to the right of the porch sewing, her sewing basket on a small table to her side, whilst the young man, in riding dress, leans against the porch to the left, facing her. In the background the house interior can be seen through the open door. The title of the work and the nervous stance of the gentleman suggests an imminent marriage proposal.
