Today’s one word prompt is Grey – or Gray as they spell it in the USA where they have more sensible spelling rules!
What comes to mind when you hear the word grey? The risqué novel “Fifty shades of Grey?” I did try to read it – but was bored after five sentences. Sooo I’ll go onto something different.
Sometimes our beautiful blue sky turns grey – I miss this colour right now as we really need some dark clouds to bring rain to the parched earth and empty dams of the Western Cape.
Grey water is what everyone is talking about here. Do you use your grey water on the garden – how do you collect it etc etc. I collect the shower water in a bucket and haul it off to the garden so that not a drop is wasted.
I like to wear the colour grey -buy I usually dress it up with something bright – like lime green or pink or even red.
When I retired I decided to stop dying my hair and allowed myself to become naturally grey. It was a good idea – I look slightly older but it’s saved me a fortune in hairdressing fees.
Grey is a common colour of birds and beasts but they seem to look amazingly beautiful in spite of their drab feathers and fur. Sometimes they too will add a bit of colour to add a bit of sparkle.
So when skies are grey and you’re feeling blue remember those are both colours that can be cheering too.
