This beautiful tea-stained egg inspired me to start a blog on "subtle beauty." Things that are just too beautiful not to share.
Yesterday I went to get some cherry blossoms for the gallery and my flower lady, Jean had made these for Easter. I just was crazy for it, so she gave it to me for a gift. The recipe is as follows: hard boil egg half way done (about 5 minutes), remove & roll around so it cracks, return to pot and add your favorite black tea and anise, continue to boil until hard boiled....cool & eat! Now, I haven't actually eaten one but they sure are lovely to look at. I sure hope she doesn't ask me how it tasted. Then I'll have to tell her I just took it home for a photo & spent the day looking at it.
