Egg load

Hope everyone had a happy Easter, whether celebrating or not! Here is how my eggs came out this year. 
I attempted dying them with red cabbage as opposed to the traditional (in my part of Romania) onion skins. 
I think you really need white eggs if aiming to obtain a proper blue, otherwise they will end up a variety of  tones, anything from a greyish duck egg to a mauve-brown or even khaki green! After the initial frustration, increased by the refusal of the dye to set (even after an all nighter and plenty of vinegar added in), I really grew to like the lichen colouring and the mottled appearance.
