Random Five Friday

Just for fun: five random thoughts for the final Friday in January.

1.) This little shrub is in a neighbor’s yard.  We can’t decide if it looks more like a Hershey’s kiss or a Dairy Queen ice cream cone.  During our recent snow event, we decided it look like one of the “Sno-cap” candies.

2.) Another photo op around the time of sunset on Wednesday.

3.) Marshall’s kitty, Snugg, enjoying the morning sun a couple of weeks ago (traces of remaining snow on the steps).

4.) This squirrel should soon weigh 200 pounds, as much bird seed as he’s devouring.  He’s resting up and planning his attack on that freshly filled bird feeder….

5.) Speaking of birds, I recently purchased this birdseed bell, and just placed it on an old bench near our kitchen window. Motor Man had called to tell me he was on his way home, so I grabbed the camera, cradled my cell phone on my shoulder and got a pic.  We rarely see cardinals in our yard, so this was a treat.

Looking over this post, I don’t think it’s very “random” at all.  Perhaps the title should have been “Nature Five Friday”.

Happy Weekend!

  1. That bush is so funny! I think you captured nature in and around your area perfectly as always.

  2. Nature Five Friday would be an excellent title. I vote for Hershey Kiss! I agree about the squirrel – we have his/her twin at our house. The reflection of the sky in the marina picture is amazing. Just a great way to end the week – with your photos.

  3. & a great winter-themed R5F ! Tired of the snow, but love the assortment here today … thanks for featuring Snugg !

  4. Definitely a Hershey’s Kiss! Great wildlife shots and I love the basking kitty.

  5. Great randoms today. We see tons of cardinals around here – I think they just know we keep the sunflower seeds loaded up in the feeders. They just SHOO the squirrels away and help themselves!

    Nature does give us a lot of things to talk about and take great pictures. Great R5F

  7. Yep, the bush looks like a Hershey’s kiss to me. Did it make you want some chocolate every time you looked at it? 😉 We have a number of cardinals come to our bird feeder. Aren’t they just beautiful especially providing a flash of color in the dead of winter?
