September: Orange with Flowers

The Next Egg

Orange with Flowers Egg
orange/light red/green/blue

This was my first try at having no *white* on the egg. I predipped the egg in the orange first. It looked suspiciously like the brown egg in the box.

(I still have more than a dozen eggs from an eggshell-harvesting brunch in April. Since then I've found organic white eggs, but I must work my way through the existing shells first. By the time I'm finished with these first 30 or so eggs, I'll be a pro).

In this egg, the green seems a bit grassier. Different eggs take dyes differently. This is especially noticable with the lighter colors, and the green was all over the board, as you'll see in the next egg.
