Carmi, over at writteninc.  is getting down and dirty, and asking us to join him!   Mind you, Carmi lives in Canada, and talks of "snow just going", but over here in the UK, our snow has long gone and Spring is now here, looking clean and fresh.    Crocuses have more or less finished now, and the daffodils are coming out, the birds are courting, and I have seen blackbirds with nesting material.   Its all coming good!

So I had to get creative with finding dirty pics!   Mr.G could not understand why I wanted to take a shot of our dirty washing up, but here it is!

We don't have a dishwasher, so it was on with the Marigolds (rubber gloves) and get on with it with a nice big bowl of hot water and detergent.

We have two benches in the park which seem to be invisible to the powers that be (probably the council)   Neither has  been painted, to my knowledge, for the last 20 years, and they are really looking grubby.   Other benches in the park have been replaced with smart-looking seats, and really spruced up, but these two languish under the beech trees by the stream.   At least they merge with the foliage!

So that is my take on dirty!   Do let me know if you visit - I like to keep track of you!

Dirty dishes is a great idea... we all make them. :-)

Lucky you to have spring, which was here for a week, even temperatures in the 70's and then winter came in dirty for us again. We got 10 inches Sunday and more last night. Grr! Your dirty dishes look really good, and rather festive. I also have a bench that's in the same shape as that one!

I usually wash all the dishes by hand, even if there is a dishwashers.

P.S. I like your dishes!

Ha ha! Loving the view of your sink. I feel soooo much better about our own pile now ;)

This park benches are indeed disgraceful, gracious, doesn't your tow have a community payback scheme in place through the probation service? Suggest your benches as a worthy cause......!

You've been clever with this assignment

Very good approach - you made the dirty dishes look attractive!

As for the bench - have you rung the council? Mr A is a councillor, and he often gets calls about footpaths, or trees, or drainage problems... Usually he manages to get things sorted out for people.

Unusual subject, anything dirty is usually not photographed! Shame about those benches, how neglectful!
