Happy Easter

The first Easter we spent in England, I drove myself crazy looking for white eggs for my children to dye. I searched every food shop and farm stand and soon discovered they simply don’t exist in England. Do not exist. (What are white eggs anyway? Are they brown ones that have been bleached??) So we settled for dying brown eggs and discovered a lovely surprise. The artificial colours produced by egg dye actually look much more relatable and lovely when applied to brown eggs. We also had fun hand-holding half an egg in the dye at a time to create this less conventional dip-dye effect. Whether in England or America for subsequent Easters I have always instead we use brown eggs for our Easter decorations. Hope you enjoy the holiday.
