Mystery photo: Lady by the pond

This 2⅞-inch-wide snapshot has a circular stamp on the back indicating the print was made in September 1938 — 80 years ago! — in La Crosse, Wisconsin. But there's no writing on the back indicating where the photo was taken or who this woman was. She's wearing an unfussy dress, has a cheery smile and is holding something I can't identify in her hands.

This pond and surrounding area look like a pleasant place for solitude and relaxation. I wonder how many frogs there are, though!

Final note: I think there's a reasonable likelihood that this is the same pond that's featured in this mystery photo from October 2016.

Jumping off point for more mystery photos here.
