True Colours: Lime

It's True Colours Thursday again! To play along visit our host Blue.

This week's theme is LIME and we found quite alot, which is our excuse for posting so late :o)

This is fresh sea lettuce....when it's in season Mum picks it up from the beach and puts it in our food!

This is the Green Lagoon on the south coast of Lanzarote. Our humans went there for Christmas & New Year just before Alfie arrived. It's the last holiday they had! (There is a holiday snap somewhere of them standing in front of the lake but "she" refuses to post it here so this one is courtesy of Wikipedia (search "El Golfo")

Next week's colour is RUST.


This is about the only Beagle photo taken today, we are ALL on leads....ughh, the indignity of it all! Apparently we can't be trusted near picnic or BBQ areas.....can't imagine why....the tourists think we're cute? (Scottish schools are back in while England are still on their Easter hols)

34 sniffy tailwags:

At least there's no picture of a lime green beagle sick from eating picnic area leftovers.

The OP Pack said...

Hmmmm, Dakota thinks that sea lettuce looks quite tasty, she is the lettuce pup here.

Yes, sadly we have to wear leads too, but we have to wear them ALL the time if we are outside of our yardL(

Tail wags, the OP Pack

What lovely and lively lime greens woo've shared!

The scenery is magnificent again!

Oh those poor khanines on their leads...they look soooo sad!

I know their pain: I am Siberian, see my leash!


britny said...

Kayls says they should think themselves lucky she has to be on a lead whenever she is out of the house :-(

Jake of Florida said...

Yep, we think the canine world is divided into two: those who can be trusted off leash -- and the rest of us!!!

My adorable Gabbi looks so lovable in that photo!!! And the contrast with the huge blocks behind them is very artistic!!!

Has Susan Boyle taken Scotland by storm the way she has the Internet?


Paco....Milo and mom..Simona said...

Mmmmmmmmmmmm...is it tasty good????
we haven't taste it never!!!
You and your mommy are a great artists!!!!!

Sweet kisses guys!!!!

Stella said...

Awwwww, Snoop, Gabbi, Rosie and Alfie had to have their leashes on...oooooh. We have to wear our leashes every day that we might go off our property. I have a very small fenced in back yard that I can run loose in but its not like a long run! You guys need to know just how lucky you are. Except for the sea lettuce part, of course.

You found tonnes. Mum's been too busy to do true colours today, she stupid.

Niamh said...

So sad that you had to be on leash! I love to see you run free on the beach. Good job with all the nice lime things. Is sea lettuce better than regular lettuce? I always spit that out.

Your friend,

Momo said...

I love your lime collection! The snake is cute :-)

Even with leads on, it's hard to control Cookie and Cinnamon near BBQ/picnic areas, because food can be everywhere as people don't bother to pick up food they've dropped!!

Hi Snoop, Alfie, Rosie, and Gabbi! Good job finding limes! Cool writing in the sand on your header! Just one thing - how come the food bowl in your lime collage is EMPTY?

See ya!

Checkers said...

sorry you had to be on leash - but you guys are off leash on that beautiful beach much more often than most of us little doggies !!!!! Great lime color choices

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Ugh! you eat seaweed?
I don't think so. not for me, grass occasionally when I feel the need...

I totally understand the indignity of being on leash, really sucks!

Puppy kisses to Snoop!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We LOVE your lime collage! How very pretty! Yup, you sure did find lots of lime!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Gennasus said...

Interesting limes, any idea why the green lake is green?

Have picnics been raided or are you just being cautious? I'd like to think it was the former and, if there's a chance it could happen again, please let me know as I'd love to see it!

Great new header!

Joe Stains said...

omdog is that lake really green for real?!?

Agatha and Archie said...

WHOA you guys look MAD........we spit out regular lettuce as well..( it is about the only thing we don't eat) so we might not like that sea lettuce either(unless it had italian dressing) Love A+A

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

You all don't look to happy about those leads...lol

Nice Limes...that lake is Pawsome, we think you should have posted the one with your mum on as well though!...hehe

We hope you all had a great Easter. :-)

Holly & zac...XX

The Army of Four said...

All on lead? Welcome to our world! We're used to it, though and really see them as our ticket to cool adventures!
VERY cool greens! Is the lake really green like that!?!?
Play bows,

Mason Dixie said...

Great lime objects and love the new header of the blog. I am coming to rescue you Alfie from the leads!!! look for me by sea. love and licks

Thor said...

good job with the lime color. You found lots of cool things!
Sorry you had to be on leash :(
Beautiful new header!


MsAnomaly said...

Such beautiful beagles! I very much enjoy your blog!

Lorenza said...

You found very nice lime things!

Kisses and hugs

I love lime gween..it makes me smile

smoochie kisses

Amber and Nala said...

Why in the world could you not be trusted around BBQ's...I don't get it! ;) That Green Lake is very cool looking!


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

That lime green lake was strange! Was is algae? You all look so sad on your leads. We can't imagine that you would really poach BBQ's. That's a job for an Airedale!! Dad & Mommy call me the poacher since I counter surf when they aren't looking.hehe.
AireSmooches, BabyRD

You guys look adorable in the photo. I played with a young Beagle today at the dog park. He kept rolling over. funny.
WelshieHugs, Hootie

Mochi and Mommy said...

Great job on the lime!

I'm on my lead all the time when we go out, but being on leads while there's a bbq going on? No fair!


Hamish Westie said...

I can't understand why we dogs are never allowed to eat other people's picnics. After all, our humans often complain about how much we cost - surely, they should be grateful for our initiative in finding free food!

L.E.W. said...

I love the lime color - and what a cool title page/header you guys got. We like ... ;)

Stinkin' kisses from Alih & James

frog ponds rock... said...

mmm sea lettuce yum, I use dried seaweed in cooking a bit. That lettuce looks like it would dry out really well. Oh dear everyone looks quite sad to be on the lead.

cheers kim

Martha Basset said...

Nice lime greens but not sure we fancy eating it!!!
We cant be trusted near barbecues either - well look what happened to Bailey!!
Have a nice weekend.
Martha & Bailey xx

Dina ... UK said...

Nice selection, I bet that sea lettuce takes some washing (salty)
very healthy though....:-)

Penny said...

Almost my favourite colour Lime but Ive only ever had night mares about eating anything lime green.........! And I know what you mean Im always stuck on a stupid lead,ALWAYS! As if loyal dogs like us would take food!,Seriously I mean who do they think we are! Oh and thanks for adding me on your friends list.=]
Lots of sloppy licks,Penny.=]
