A tall Eastern white-pine tree-hug this morning.
When there are 5 needles in the 'bundle' it is a white pine.
You can estimate its age by counting the branch rings.
An interesting example of tree self-healing.
Nearby, the cutest little leaf-boy.
And an amazing double-propeller fringed polygala (also called gaywings). I felt lucky getting to see this wild-flower peeking out the leaves. Breathe deep and enjoy the abundant gifts of nature. 💚 Peace
