girl in a red coat

girl in a red coat
reading under an oak tree
harbinger of spring

In the last days of winter, the colors are mostly drab browns, muted grays, dull yellows. Along the trail around the lake, the only spots of brightness are white shelf mushrooms on fallen logs and rust-orange needles under the white pines. In the little park the sight of a young lady in a red coat with a red notebook and red water bottle pops out from the monotone landscape. Sitting with her back against one of the large oaks, she is enjoying the charms of fresh air, sunshine and reading.
