1. F is for Frozen, at the beginning and at the end of this month, with some reprieve in between. Little hummingbird was again freezing his tongue off, and suffering from possible brain freeze. Actually that's just my take on it ~ the hummingbird seems to carry on as ever, although I'm sure fresh sweetened nectar is appreciated each time I refill the feeder.
2. 3 p.m.
Today, at 3 p.m., I took a photo of my weather gauge ~ not too exciting, but lets me know that it is warming up outside and not overly warm inside!
I noticed this wagon with bales acting as a decorative marker to a piece of property ~
The top of my lamp in the front window adds a little glow to the contrasting snow-covered boughs outside ~
I know this photo shows 12:15 or so, but also thought, if push came to shove, I could use it for the 3:00 p.m. slot ~ just have to pretend that the lengths of the hands are switched ;)
Friends of mine came down with bad colds ~ which is nothing unusual during this time of the year, but it was especially worrying as one of them has other serious health issues. We have a long standing relationship with humour, so as I was packing up the Bee Well gift basket, I added a compilation of bee jokes.
The next day...I realized I'd missed the mark, literally even! I couldn't believe I'd put fresh bare-naked lemons in the basket when they would have made perfect...
Naturally, I had to quickly acquire a plastic lemon and dress it up forthwith and send it on its way to them, along with a poem. (click to enlarge)
When I answered the phone, all I could hear was 'buzzing' as they buzzed and buzzed before thanking me ;)
How about a frozen fountain, since that's what this month is all about ~ freezing, frozen, frigid, frosty February!
8. Round ~ I had quite a few round choices, but today, while the sun was shining, I took a little walk around the neighbourhood and saw these round ball-like seed clusters hanging from a tree. I don't know what kind of a tree it is, but I might just keep my eye on it and take note as the season moves into spring. Quite a jolly bauble tree!
A photo of the slush wending through the river with trees shadowed on the rocks was my choice for this category.
Back to one of my favorite subjects, birds ~ in this case a group of ducks taking off.
Does turning over-ripe bananas into banana nut bread count?
Back to the river ~ I thought this frozen formation at the river's edge mirrored a reflection of a cloudy sky.
and as February draws to a close, please remember to ... Bee Kind and Bee Well ~ those are the wishes of the lovely Queen Bee ~
