Good things are worth the wait. While May might be known as National Asparagus Month, the traditional spring dish you’ll likely enjoy this season didn’t mature overnight.

With Easter celebrations taking place on April 5, you may be thinking about dyeing eggs and hiding them for young hunters. However, these fresh eggs—gathered from several local farms in Arkansas—come naturally in stunning hues. Pictured here are eggs laid by Ameraucana (blue), Polish (white), Rhode Island Red and Buff Orpingtons (light brown), and Cuckoo Maran (dark brown) hens. While nothing compares to the taste and texture of fresh eggs, we think you’ll agree that this colorful harvest is almost too beautiful to eat.
Nothing says “Hello, spring!” quite like the first daffodils bursting forth from a newly greening lawn. Perhaps it’s in part due to their cheerful yellow hue. The brilliant, instantly recognizable–and often imitated–color seems to remind many of us of sun-filled days as well as the promise of the forthcoming season.
