An Egg is Beautiful
“I don’t know of anything in the world more wonderful to look at then a nest with eggs in it. An egg, because it contains life, is the most perfect thing there is. It is beautiful and mysterious.”
---E.B. White, author of Charlotte's Web and a life long admirer of chickens and eggs. To him, "the egg is all."
As we celebrate spring, let us appreciate the egg, the perfect symbol for the renewal of life.
