i think that if i will not bring but i will make more kinds of those eggs with different kinds of plants that i see somewhere else. sincerely katie

And from her mama, these look gorgeous. we definitely need to try this at home.


Love O's nail polish!

Laura and Katie,

I'd love to see what plants the Brooklyn parks have to offer. Enjoy!

Carey, You need a teal fingers franchise!

Is it spoiling the surprise if I mention that you can often get a beautiful starburst (for lack of a better word) from where the cheesecloth is tied?

These are lovely. I bet the egg salad will be pretty tasty, too!

Any ideas on why my red cabbage dye won't affix to the eggs? Tried more and more vinegar.......house stinks and eggs are still white.

Hmmmm, Julie, I haven't had that problem. I have had the color come out quite pale, even with the vinegar, but never not affix at all. Could it be the eggs? Maybe transfer them to an onion dye, which seems to be failsafe? Sorry! Best of luck,

Thanks so much for posting this. I've done this before, but your beautiful pictures inspired me to do it again, with two other mamas and eight kids total. We got some beautiful eggs. BTW, when I did it before the red cabbage worked, but this time I had the same problem as the above commenter, absolutely nothing. So when the kids weren't looking I snuck a little blue icing gel in the pot. Maybe different varieties of cabbage behave differently, who knows?

- This is so funny, I eat hard boiled eggs every once in awihle on my salads. But Kelsey LOVES eggs and I have been meaning to make her hard boiled to see if she likes them. I never seem to get it just right. I will write this down and hopefully be as lucky as you to make the perfect hard boiled egg! Thanks!
