yellow: it’s violet season!

  • a truly egg-cellent rainbow today!! green dinosaur egg is a rare and wonderful find for any paleontologist. And green jello, I’m so happy to oblige for the green in this rainbow.

  • what an amazing rainbow monday! the egg with the perfect dream catcher is definitely my favorite. the wrinkly egg… wow… i had no idea that happens with older hens eggs! unfortunately, none of our hens have ever made it to old age because of the predator situation around here.
