Fresh Eggs Are So Neighborly!

I looove having chickens, but I haven't had
any for years now. I love watching and listening
to them cluck and busy themselves about their
coop! It's somewhat of a wholesome feeling
having them around...Nothing more satisfying
than checking a hen's nest and finding their
sweet present of an egg waiting for you!!!

I've missed this.

...and then Friday when I got 
home from work, a neighbor was over
visiting with McGiver and pretty soon
his wife came over with a dozen 
beautiful eggs, from their hens!
I opened up the carton
and 
found
these
 beauty's! 
~the dark brown ones are speckled~

~simply beautiful~

She asked if we'd ever had duck eggs before...
We hadn't,
so she went home and
brought us this guy...

WooHoo!


~hard to tell here how big it is~

~it's huge~

~isn't it fantastic~

~they're so perfect they almost look fake~

~gorgeous~

                                                                                 
~anyone hungry for an omelet~


I've had this adorable little egg basket for
awhile now, and hadn't
quite been able
to pull out
the ole
plain
white
grocery
store
eggs
to
fill
it...

However for these eggs,
it was a different
story!

Don't you agree?!

She has green eggs too,
she told me when I
return the carton
she'll fill it up
again...

How fun!

I may invite you
over for some

GREEN EGGS and HAM!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
I love all your comments, they really
make my day! I'd also looove it if
you'd follow me!

Always, Debbie~

sweet! It's always nice to have great neighbors. That duck egg is huge in comparison. Don't think I could eat the green ones, even though they all look the same inside. yum...omelets..;j

Those autumnal colored eggs are just too pretty to eat...would love to see pics of the green ones if you get some!

What a truly lovely gift from your neighbor (and her 'girls'!) The basket shows them so beautifully. I'd be baking a super cake with some of those mmmmmm.
