52 WC – Amber & Ash Grey

Instead of trying to create 2 different looks, I decided to do a mash-up this time, which is why the title sounds like a pair of characters from a day-time soap.

Amber was the colour of the week for week 14 with Ash Grey for week 15.

Amber as a colour name is derived from the material also known as amber, which is commonly found in a range of yellow-orange-brown-red colours; likewise, as a colour it can refer to a range of yellow-orange colours. In English the first recorded use of the term as a colour name, rather than a reference to the specific substance, was in 1500.

The first recorded use of ash grey as a colour name in English was in 1374.

My garden space…

Compared to my old place, I now have about 4 times the prim allowance, so I have started to create a cosy garden corner. (It also means that our cats (Emmi’s & mine) can run free, instead of being cooped up in the house all the time.)

The little white ‘blob’ in the middle of the picture is my cat, Skimbleshanks. He is named after a cat in T S Eliot’s 1939 published collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.

Just a little further round to the left is a little entertainment area I have set up:
