Gray

Gray -  adjective, a mixture of white and black

Gray skies abound here in Smalltownland. 

Dreary colors have their place allowing everything its winter rest. 

Patiently waiting for spring.

  4. Kierkegaard-ing...sparse, palpable, direct, provocative

  5. These are beautiful photos. The weather is so nice right now and again tomorrow, but the snowstorm is headed our way. I am patiently waiting for spring, too.

  6. We had gray skies today as well..... I am always ready for spring around valentines, especially after seeing all of the tulips and hyacinths that the florist send out. Hope you are able to enjoy a relaxing weekend.

  15. Gray skies do bad things for my mood. There is nothing like a blue sky.

  16. We all need sunshine in our lives. Including all the wonderful colours that exist. When it's grey, you just need to dig a little deeper and see the shades of grey.

    Wonderful and thought provoking post.
