all’s well…

coloured-pencil-appleWell, the good news is that the 17th century bug I feared had taken down the male members of this family is not long lived – once it’s out in the open. Clearly 17th century bugs are no match for the modern male. The beloved spent the morning digging the garden and, although he’s a little sore, he’s almost back to full health….almost.

Arlo (he took a little coaxing) and I went for a long walk to Dartington and up through the woods and back via cheesy chips and a Luscombe lemonade. We met up with Fina, Lisa, Paulo, Jane, Rosa, Kai (but he didn’t stay long) and assorted dogs and had a great walk in the sunshine. Arlo returned home cured – he couldn’t keep up the pretence of feeling ill any longer and even managed a go on the trampoline.

Here’s an apple I drew, botanical illustration style, in coloured pencils; it’s a red russet and tasted lovely. It may be a precursor to a coloured pencil drawing of a stripy aubergine, but I’m not sure.

    The apple is wonderful enough to eat! You’ve got talent.
