This evening, I was wondering around the garden when something unusual caught my eye. It was sitting on a stepping stone in one of the flower beds.
By the way, notice the cool reflection of our locust tree in the bird bath.
I got a closer look.
Oh my! It's an egg. An egg with no shell.
The size seems to be right for a robin's egg.
What I can't show with a photo is how the egg gives. It is squishy if you will.
I remember gathering chicken eggs on my parents' farm growing up and occasionally finding an egg like this in the nests. No idea why it happens. I left it out in nature after sharing the find with my wonderful husband. He'd never seen an egg without a shell before.
