Given that we are swimming in fresh eggs, I wasn’t about to buy white eggs just to have something for my kids to dye for Easter! I bought a few different products that I thought might work to dye brown and blue eggs.
Even though we’re not exactly located in the wilderness, we have about seven acres and are surrounded by conservation land. This means a constant stream of wildlife takes advantage of our space. Thought I’d share some photos of our frequent visitors over the last year or so!
I’m very excited because we’ve started working with a landscape designer to solve some of our persistent problems around the property! While I’m pretty confident with interiors, when it comes to the outdoors I know how to grow food and flowers, but nothing about drainage, yards and hardscapes.
