Rustic Greys for Grey Dey Thursdey

Whilst walking around our garden lately 
taking some images of our beautiful Spring garden

I realized just how many shades of grey I could see.  
In fact our whole house is constructed of corrigated grey 
iron cladding to begin with.


There are several gentle slopes with timber steps that
have changed to a lighter shade of grey with age.

Beautiful grey timbers used as fence posts and railings
with grey wire attached next to a grey wire gate

to fence in our precious goat beauties and, of course,
the large number of trees displaying their beautiful natural

Ornamental grasses have been planted in and out of
rocks and stones.
Constant daily visitors like these Grey Shrike Thrushes
perch daily on the kitchen window sill,
especially when feeding their young, as is the
present case
to beg a treat or two!

I'm hoping to share images of our Spring garden soon
including our magnificent display of roses.

I'm linking this post to Michelle
(thanks for hosting this Grey Dey Thursday party Michelle)
although a tad late

Thank you dear friends always for your kind visits
 and comments especially on my previous posts.
I so appreciate you all!!!

Have a great weekend and up coming week!



  1. Hello Suzy,
    Your grey post is lovely. Grey is one of my favorite colors. It never used to be, but it has really grown on me. Your grey images look so fab, especially your little goat! I love goats! Your visitor at the window is beautiful too, you got a really good image of him (or her?).
    Do you name your goats? I noticed the tag number was you really have at least 75 goats???
    I love seeing where you live. I am looking forward to pictures of your roses.
    Hugs to you,

  2. Don't you just love all those shades of me it is such a lovely and soothing color...hope you are having a lovely day.

  3. Hello Dear Suzi
    i don't love specially grey, for me it's a sad color associated with black and death!
    I have weared so much black, that I can't anymore.
    But in grey, there's a little part of white, light is comming back, and then , all roses in your garden will put many parts of colors and life will be full of light back!
    Hugs and kisses

  4. Dear Suzy, thanks so much for letting us share in the beauty of your Spring garden. Grey is not often a colour we associate with Spring, but the subtlety of all the different , muted shades you have managed to capture here just breathe sheer beauty! The tranquillity and peacefulness of it all took me right to my happy place, - thank you!!

  5. Hi Suzy! You have certainly made a beautiful case for grey. I'm even looking forward to the next grey, rainy day now! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden. I love that goat! XO Sue

  12. It is such a delight to hear someone talking about the anticipation of Spring as we spiral into the gloomy, all gray, season here in the Pacific Northwest. I am looking forward to your roses.

  13. Beautiful textures as well as beautiful greys. And what a lovely goat.

  14. Hi Suzi! Grey is not my favorite, as it seems so cool, and I like warmth, but I do love the color combination of gray with the all the shades of greens, and when we see your pinks it will be incredible! Oh the roses! Your goat is precious, I would love to see more. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property, and your bird friend too! Hugs!

  18. What a wonderful post Suzy. I dislike the grey cold November days before Christmas. My friend and I used to suffer from what we called the November wobbles. Having said that, today has been the most beautiful day with a blue sky and a frost so crisp the garden was a picture. You take some gorgeous images Suzy, the shades of grey are stunning....

  19. Wow, your greys are lovely there. The goat is so cute and I love the bird begging at the window. They must be trained and know where the food is kept. Your have a beautiful place, thanks for sharing. Have a happy week ahead!

  27. Die Bilder sind wieder so bezaubernd und anrührend, dass ich mich jetzt schon über den Frühling bei dir freue.
    Wir gehen grade mit großen Schritten vom Herbst auf den Winter zu.
    Es wird jeden Tag länger dunkel, trübe und kühl.
    Da ist es schön in der Stube bei Kerzenschein einen guten Tee zu trinken.
    Ich werde "deinen" Frühling weiter verfolgen und freue mich auf neue Fotos.
    Umarmung und alles Liebe von Sophie xx

  28. A friend and I were in a clothing store this morning and were commenting about how much we liked grey - and I come home to read your post. Perfect timing!

  29. Seeing your garden and goat and bird and realizing you are entering Spring really sings to me. I love all the shades of grey you have. I have loved grey since I was very young which I know is not common. When your roses bloom your grey backdrop will really make the roses "Spring forth". Lovely photos dear...

  30. Wow, I love the subtle beauty of all of the greys you have shared with us. Your photos are wonderful.


  31. Late as usual, but I did want to thank you for sharing the beautiful pics of your garden and all of your beautiful grays... what a tranquil setting.

    I love your goats! The one who allowed you to sneak up on him for a close-up looks as if he is smiling!: )

    And the thrush is adorable, waiting so expectantly at the window sill... so precious. You captured his (her?) grays and tans so perfectly--I feel as if I'm looking at him through my own window.

    Thank you again, dear Suzy, for sharing all of this beauty. xoxo


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
