Eggs, Naturally

A friend of mine from work raises chickens near Casa Grande and brings them to fellow staff interested when they are plentiful. She says that certain breeds ("Araucanas" or "Ameraucanas") produce particular colors and that these are very popular with customers at Easter. This image and the next one in my stream are the exact natural color of these eggs, after I boiled them to get them ready for my grand-daughters.

    I bet they taste yummy in addition to looking so beautiful. How wonderful that your friend is willing to share! I have a dancing friend who also sometimes brings us eggs, but they are just the plain soft brown ones. It's still a gift. :) I really like the tonalities in this collection. Makes me smile.
