This woman was spending some time outdoors on a sunny day working in her yard. At this point in her activity, she was using a hand trowel in order to dig some holes into which she was about to add some newly purchased pansies. She had applied sunscreen to the sun-exposed skin of her face, and chose to wear a long-sleeved shirt and denim pants, all of which would help to protect her from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. She was also wearing a scarf and gloves to protect her scalp and hands.
