We have had so much rain over the past week that I was beginning to believe that we would never see the sun again.  Yet, yesterday it was beautiful, sunny and not a cloud was in the sky.  Despite the rain, spring is my absolute favorite season.  The spring blooms are just making the yard…

To me, I find eggs some of the most beautiful things in the world. I love them most in their natural form, where their beauty sometimes takes my breath away.  Not only are they beautiful for their size, shape and coloring, but their inner beauty is just magical.   To see more of my egg…
