50 Shades of......

 
DULL!
 
What a miserable month January is, the grey is so depressing and endless. 
 
Down on our river walk this morning I tried to find some colour even the dogs took on a muddy grey tinge, thankfully they don't care what the weather is and will enjoy the walk and the day regardless...I wish I was a little more like that.
 
I only had my camera on my phone with me this morning but lets see if we can put a twist of a smile on an otherwise miserable day.
 

My wellies ....every girl needs a good photo of her wellies in a puddle....and a good splash too ;) 

 
The only colour is the dull wishy washy green of the rain soaked and sodden fields.

 
Good job nothing gets these two down, they are so happy wagging and splashing that the picture is all blurry, still some of the mud got washed off!



My Izabel just looking around for Defi who is in the woods behind following the pheasant, rabbit, squirrel, badger scent...there is never a shortage of wildlife scents around here.....
 


Ethereal trees just waiting for Spring.
 

 
Sludgy mud.  It might be grey and dull and miserable but you just can't beat the sound of walking through sludgy mud in wellie boots, that sucking and slopping sound followed by splashing in a puddle.......


Just to brighten up a dull and dreary day, have a look at these zingy beads, bold blues and lime greens.

You can have some of my mud Deb!! 10 months of dry dog walks sounds like a bit of heaven but I can imagine you missed it, you may have much more of ours :P x

Your beads are gorgeous!! And I'm glad I live somewhere where winter isn't so gray and muddled. Growing up in Germany, I know just what that's like and I don't miss it! Looks like your dogs love being outside, gray or not... So nice to meet you!! xoxo Silke

Morning Silke, you made me look twice then I walk with a lovely German lady with the same name down at the river with my dogs. I envy you your less grey winter days and I love Germany having spent a couple of years living just outside of Monchengladbach when I was a child. Thank you for stopping by my blog :) x
