To dye or not to dye



 That is the question



We buy farm fresh eggs from a young girl in the country every week.  Since Spring has sprung her little hens have been laying the most exquisite variety of colored eggs.  It's hard to out do mother nature!

Terri, I love fresh eggs. I go crazy at whole foods with all the blue and green eggs. I open all the boxes to find the perfect combination!!! Mother Nature does the best painting job on all of her elements!!! Have a wonderful Easter with your family sweet friend, xo Kathysue

Our neighbors in the wine country have chickens that lay pale blue eggs.
They are so adorable! Mother Nature knows what she's doing! I am taking
it the natural route though and dyeing my eggs with the peels from a yellow onion. The eggs will be a burnt red. It's how the Armenians and Greeks have always done it. It is supposed to symbolize the blood of Christ. Purple cabbage turns them blue too.
Happy Easter to you and your family. xo Delores

Your eggs look beautiful just the way they are... natural! We're lucky and get fresh eggs as well living in the country and aren't they the best? Happy Easter!

Good memories arise from your beautiful eggs... growing up we had a variety of different chickens and the eggs were always so beautiful. As a child I didn't appreciate them as much as I do now so of course our mom would let us color them, but only with homemade fruit & vegetable dyes. The older I get the more I appreciate the childhood I had ~ Jacque
