Leftover Egg Dyes

Little Chemists

Mixing it Up

A productive afternoon spent with leftover egg dye and baby plants: mixing potions kept the girls busy and happy while I tended kale, broccoli, and flower seedlings.  Amabel made a few hair-dying concoctions and an "April fool's day beet soup."  Ellen created an unusual blueberry colored nail polish mixed with thyme leaves.  

I wish I had a sound recording to go with the photos—oh to listen to these girls chatting away together!  How I love their 'unselfconscious' dialogues.

Seedlings

Marigold Seedlings

And here we have some baby marigolds—the beauty and variety of those first two little leaves never cease to amaze me.
