Two close friends, a cat and a skeleton, return to their special meeting place to contemplate the new growth of spring. Both figures face away from the viewer, the cat on the right sitting on a tall tree stump, and the skeleton on the left standing with its arm around the cat. They are in the shadow of several foreground trees, looking into the distance. The day is bright blue with a large white sun and sporadic patches of clouds. The budding trees have purple flowers, and the ground is covered with golden shoots.
