The eggs that we buy in the store, while incredibly nutritious and tasty, are pretty dull aesthetically. They come in a few different sizes, and the color choices are limited to white and brown. They aren’t very exciting. So when Easter comes along, and we have a reason to make our eggs pink and green and purple, it seems like a real treat.

We often forget that nature takes the prize when it comes to creating beautiful and colorful eggs. Between birds and lizards, there are some pretty amazing egg designs out there. The speckled eggs, and those with bright coloring, are the most memorable. Robin’s eggs are often a favorite, though I doubt anyone would want the real thing in their basket.

Happy Spring!
