Easter Eggs

Maggy recreated egg coloring techniques without the special packets from the drugstore that we used to use. These eggs are hard boiled (I like egg salad.) But we used to do them with blown eggs and I still have many of them from the '80s which all evoke special memories.

Not to be outdone, Bill started painting eggs for us years ago. He's been doing it for about twenty years, so I have dozens. Many are birds or spring flowers. Some celebrate events. The second one pictured here is about maple sugaring. We use red buckets and I like the way they stand out in the grey spring woods. I have one (not pictured here) of a New York skyline commemorating Maggy's move to New York.
