Green Eggs and Glass

Lori and Russell Ford happen to be glassblowers with a flock of chickens and a cow or two. They live about a 1/2 mile from me, with lots of other people's cows between us. Yesterday, I wandered down to their place to pick-up a dozen eggs. Lori has one Araucana chicken who lays the most beautiful greenish/blue eggs. I love opening the carton and seeing 1 or 2 of those magical eggs nestled in with all the other lovely shades of brown. It's not everywhere that you can buy a dozen eggs and a handblown glass to match!
