Ever try Ukrainian Egg Decorating?

Today I participated in a workshop on Ukrainian Easter egg decorating. I've never tried this before, but a friend of mine heard about it and we decided to give it a whirl. 
The workshop took place at  The Little Fork Episcopal Church in Rixeyville, VA.
It is a lovely colonial historical church. We had a wonderful time, I learned something new, met some nice people and had a great time. 
Here is my attempt - I got 2 eggs done, unfortunately one has a crack, but I guess now it matches me :)
Since we had to purchase a kit for the class, I may try to do a few more.

Spring is coming early

Spring is coming early to my little neck of the woods, I took these photos today. I neglected my garden last year, but I miss it, so I'll be out among my flowers this year for sure.

this shot makes me think of photos of the crowd at a baseball game
I forgot I planted this little hyacinth

I don't know what these little weeds are, but they're cute
this looks like lace and pom poms to me.
