Victorian painting mother and child eating cherries

I've always particularly liked this Victorian painting of mother and daughter by Leighton.  The pose, the soft colors, the intimacy, even the folds of fabric are so lovely.  I could have saved it for Mother's Day, but what made me think of it today was ripe cherries in the grocery store!  There are also lilies in my yard (like in the picture except mine are yellow), so all in all it's a summer image to me.
