    Shows a old woman sitting inside a cosy room, which has a window revealing a snow storm outside. Hovering near her is a large wasp, at which she shows delight because it portends 'a Warm and Early Summer'. The caption reveals that the inspiration for the picture is a recent article in the Field.
