yesterday i took a trip to the tron (hamilton) and caught up with a very old friend who had these goodies waiting! onions - someone had given them a big bagful, more than they could use but the eggs are from her sweet chickens and the walnuts from their tree. and the basket was for me - she claims that i passed this addiction onto her - of that i am proud!
i just had to separate these two off from the araucanas as i am smitten with the colour. i might blow the egg out and save the shell so i can continue to fill my boots with that hue!
