Five In Five On The 5th - February, 2017

Linking in with Sandie & the other Fivers at : Itchifingers  The idea is to take five photos in five minutes on the 5th of the month. 

We are in the middle of a freezing ice pellet storm system so lighting is less than ideal inside & out.  I quickly took my 5 while outside filling up the bird feeders.








"Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.  And the anticipation nurtures our dream."

    1. I have been playing with the concept of thirds in setting a photo or a scrapbook page layout, so the bird feeder was a test, trying to see the ordinary in a new way. I once skated on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa - it was quite cool (not temperature) skating straight for a good while. Lots of places to stop & get hot chocolate or sit down for a break. Worthy winter activity.

  2. Your photos really capture how cold it must be! Brrr! How thoughtful of you to go out into it to feed the birds :).

    1. In my youth, I never saw myself as one of those worrying about the birds but living in our own home with a big backyard, I am enthralled with all the wild life. The wind is what is making it quite cold, & while I am trying to mind my words, the wind is bitingly cold.

  3. Brrrr.... That does look cold. It's good to feed the birds when did is in short supply. My husband had a bird feeding station for Christmas and it is attracted more birds into the garden. Thank you for joining in this month, you have done great photos and I liked the frozen water from the pipe.

    1. Not to scare anyone, but it is about to get colder & a little nastier weather coming in for Tuesday morning, which means perfect hibernation weather day.

  6. Good for you! I stayed inside all day yesterday, and totally missed that it was the 5th (again!) Hoping to get my 5in5 later today in a much kinder environment!
