A garden at the back of a house with tall white lilies taking up most of the painting. The flowers almost seem to glow against the subdued greens and browns of the rest of the image. The painting is surrounded by a white border with its name and painter at bottom centre.

A Cottage Garden was painted at Uffington, near Oxford, where Osborne passed the summer and autumn of 1888. Such a detailed evocation of flowers is unusual for him. Having come under the influence of Realist and Impressionist painting in France, Osborne became attracted by the notion of painting outdoors, directly from the motif, and of 'truth' to nature. Such an approach is apparent in the freshness of his treatment of the lillies and vegetation here.
