Start to Summer

Start to Summer

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of May.

Soon the cigales will return to Provence and the lavender will begin to bloom.

Mistrals will turn warm and olive trees will shimmer in the sunlight.

Days will be filled with time at the beach and family vacations.

There is a slower rhythm to France in the summer and I am looking forward to it.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all those celebrating this weekend.

Easter Egg Alternatives

Easter Egg Alternatives

Dying eggs was something my kids loved doing when they were young.

Armed with a dozen eggs, each set off to choose their own dyes.  The latter was a production all unto itself and often took longer than the entire dying process.

Now there are beautiful Easter egg alternatives that go above and beyond the old food coloring and vinegar method.

I’m fascinated by the colors produced by plants and berries.

and who knew that a few drops of nail polish would create this kind of effect?

I’m particularly drawn to the hues produced by the blueberries and red cabbage in this chart from Pinterest….

and the grape juice from this selection.

Whatever method you choose, enjoy the process and the results.

Happy holiday weekend!
