Brigitte watches as Maya ties her first egg.
Getting started...Plants-parsley, dill, ferns, flowers and leaves from the garden.
All of my eggs are ready for dyeing.

The photos show the eggs tied with stockings holding the plant material in place.
Maya has all of hers done. I've got eight done.
Next you see the beet decoction with eggs being dyed and then the onion skin decoction.

Easter Eggs the Natural Way!!
These are the finished eggs I dyed.  The top one is using a sprig of parsley.  The next photo shows half on the left dyed using an onion skin decoction and on the right first in the beet decoction then into the onion decoction.
A close up of the eggs.  last close ups of dill.
