A splash of colour

Today as I passed through an industrial estate in my car I was struck by the beauty of a tree in glorious shades of red orange and brown sitting incongruously in front of a row of warehouses.  It was a short tree, slightly unkempt as if it had planted itself down one windy day and nobody had quite got around to moving it on.

Placed outside the warehouse beside it were four brightly covered outdoor chairs in green, orange, red and yellow.  Square and sophisticated, they looked like the cool gang and the little winter tree like the girl who stood out but wanted to fit in.

Beautiful.
