These are my favourite type of Easter Eggs...the real sort. I loved it when I had a few bantams and collecting their eggs was one of my greatest pleasures. Each hen laid a subtly different egg. I didn't have any of the breeds that lay blue eggs. The blue goes through the whole shell to the other side. I get my mixed eggs from a friend, but am always on the lookout for eggs for sale from signs at the side of the road.
I very rarely eat chocolate these days as it affects me, so it was rather odd that yesterday evening I indulged. The consequence was a strange night of sleep and was drowsily woken up this morning with a call to morning breakfast.....
With even more rain overnight it meant a quick step out onto the drive to pick the smallest amount to fill my empty egg shell. Some of my 'Ivory White' Wallflowers, a miniature daffodil and a few violas. I would describe the wallflowers as pale yellow.
For some reason the violas seem to have attracted all the snails in the neighbourhood...they just love the blooms, and I really had to hunt to find some unnibbled ones.
