The original rug, dated 1822 depicts three houses with fences, trees, cornstalks, and flowers. It appears to be autumn, without leaves on the trees and dried cornstalks. There are flowers in the yard and the date 1892 sits in the center, at the bottom border. There are multiple striped borders. The colors, against the blue sky, are my favorite part of the rug!
