The greys have it

Grey is one of my favourite colours.

Some people may argue that it's technically not a colour, but rather a hue. Others will suggest it reminds them of rain-laden clouds, tempestuous days, and black and white drabness.

To me it reminds me of the comfort of my jersey scarf on a sunny autumn day during a walk on a Melbourne pier (top left); the trunks of the gum trees I camped amidst in South Australia (top right); the silvery glow of fragrant and swaying lavender bush in a Clare Valley winery (bottom left); and the glossy silver bead on my favourite necklace (bottom right).

It may not be for everyone but grey sure can be OK.
