The scene is probably in the garden of Churchyard's house in Cumberland Street, Woodbridge; the figures in the tent may be two of his daughters, who were also amateur artists. The oak panel on which the work is painted appears to have been taken from wall panelling or from a piece of furniture; at other times Churchyard used cigar box lids. A small landscape by David Wilkie of a garden near Woodbridge is also shown in this room. Churchyard's friend Edward Fitzgerald, translator of the 'Rubaiyat', owned a similar landscape by Wilkie.
