Sunday Post: Dying Eggs The Color of Dawn

Coloring Eggs In the light

Coloring Eggs In the late afternoon  sunlight as the days grow longer.

Caught in the Act. Who put those ears on me

Caught in the Act. Who put those ears on me?

Eggs are probably our oldest symbol of birth and renewal, reminders of the incredible persistence and variety of life. Dying these elegant packages the colors of dawn we join the spinning Earth bathing in the light of a new day. No matter my age I still thrill at how the once white egg is transformed by a quick swim in a cup of colored water.

Happy Easter, Eostar or Passover.

Jakesprinters offers a lovely animated Easter post including a history lesson.
