Coloring eggs and flowers



The boys were especially proud of their Easter
eggs this year.  We used acrylic paint and silk
ties to come up with these...


Both of these fun ideas, are courtesy of 


Photobucket





Peonies are such beautiful flowers, even
before they bloom...





Don't they look like colored eggs???


And, apparently they're delicious!

Very cool! Family Fun magazine has some really cool ideas. My sister-in-law just told about a couple of recipes she used from last months issued and loved them.

The silk tie eggs fascinate me. I'm going to have to go find out how it was done.
I have peonies in my front yard and I can't wait until they bloom!

Tara said...

great pictures! I love peonies too, even before they bloom!

deb duty said...

The eggs are so fun! And I agree, the peonies are so pretty. I don't have any around me that I know of.

Natalie said...

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Your eggs are great... and they look like fun to make! :) Beautiful! And peonies... one of my favorites. Ours have a while before them bloom, but I can't wait. They smell SO pretty!

Dirt On The Rocks said...

These look so beautiful! I wish I had my son do something like this. It's fun, easy, and definitely different.

Cecily R said...

AAAAAAAAHmazing shots this week Dina!! Love the eggs and the peonies (now that I've typed it out, what a funny word that is...) are gorgeous!

debi9kids said...

your eggs are fantastic!
LOVE the neat designs. Glad you took photos bfore eating them ;)

Kala said...

Gorgeous bokeh in those peony macros!

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

At least the honeydew that is secreted by the bud is delicious. It is a myth that ants open the peonies. Gorgeous shots. V

Linda Makiej said...

Terrific photos!! Glad I found you - lovely blog here!

leavesnbloom said...

Those eggs are just marvelous Dina - the boys must be so proud of their work.

I've never looked that closely at a paeony bud before and didn't realise how nice they really are at that stage.

kaye said...

I love peony's and I love how you captured the essential relationship between the peony and the ant. Without that little ant doing his job we wouldn't have the beautiful blossom. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

alicia said...

What kind of flower is that? It is awesome!

Lynda said...

Those eggs are really awesome!

I am *so* bad at flower names! I had no idea those were pansies. My grandmother had a bunch of them in her backyard when I was a child. The ants swarmed all over the unopened buds!

Wonderful photographs!

Abi said...

Yes! The peonies are beautiful in the bud... now I really want to see them in bloom!

Liza said...

gorgeous!
