Making Eggs Out of Roses
Whenever I'm deadheading my roses I always save the spent blossoms in a bucket for the hens. Here you see roses along with cuttings from the herbs around the garden - rosemary, lemon balm, lavender, mint, oregano, whatever weeds I've pulled out of the flower beds.
The girls come running whenever I show up with the white bucket. They know some tasty treat in store for them. Mrs. Gold's maternity ward/nursery is in the background. Don't worry I saved some rose petals for her.
Pink is the absolute favorite color followed by red and white. Yellow is a distant last place. They gobble the petals down whole. Those egg yolks tomorrow will be so bright!
