Pine tree

My dog’s newest nature toys are pinecones.  They’re still covered with snow in our city and only this week the snow started to melt.  I noticed that the snow under trees went away first.  My dog seemed happy to see dirt and grass again.  He spent a lot of time sniffing under the trees and found many pinecones.  He got right into breaking them apart.  While he was busy on playing I was looking around and saw the sky.  It was a very clear day, not even one cloud floating.  A pine tree against the solid blue sky was popping out.  I don’t think I’ve ever looked through a pine tree from right under it.  I’m thankful for my dog who let me rest under the tree and gave me the chance to see the beautiful tree and sky.
