A MOUSE BIDS GOOD DAY ON THE ALLOTMENT


Mouse just visible bottom RH of picture
We went to the allotment to recover the mypex sheets (a good barrier to weeds/retains moisture, keeps soil warm) belonging to Sian’s plot that someone had pulled off and dragged away to the other end of the field.

Job done; I stayed behind and made a drawing of hoes, canes et al.  

Sitting on my stool, low and close to a collection of wooden pallets and starting to draw, a small brown mouse emerged to say hello. 

Ears as big as saucers and a tail long enough to set a line of shallots against.  

I carried on drawing pretending not to notice.
