Portrait Of Nugget

It is almost ten years since I made any drawings. Whilst listening to the third day’s play of the first 2019 Ashes Test between England and Australia I produced

this portrait of Nugget to send to my granddaughter Imogen.

While we enjoyed our drinks on the patio

a bee molested a marigold

and Nugget crowed over a cockerel.

This evening we dined on minty lamb burgers; roast parsnips and potatoes including sweet ones; crunchy carrots, and tender green beans, with which Jackie drank Blue Moon and I drank Tesco’s finest Saint-Chinian Languedoc-Roussilon 2016.

  1. Oh, how sweet! This little friend of yours inspired you to pick up your drawing tools. It’s a beautiful picture – I love the posture – looking back over his shoulder. Imogen will love it. I love the pink and orange flowers together. And I had to look up “cockerel.”

  2. Oh, I love your drawing of Little Nugget! Beautiful, Derrick! PLEASE draw more often!
    Imogen will treasure your drawing always! πŸ™‚

    Hmm…birds and bees…and “molesting”…your garden is full of activity! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€
    HUGS to all!!! πŸ™‚

  3. A very nice interpretation of the third member of your household – don’t forget to sign it before passing it on to Imogen!

    I imagine you rather enjoyed the cricket and time in the garden! πŸ™‚

    I suspect Nugget’s rotundity is more down to the angle of perspective than any relative similarity to your legendary eating capacity. πŸ˜‰

  4. Your drawing of Nugget is perfect, Derrick. You should get back into it!
    I haven’t had parsnips in a long time. Could Jackie be so kind as to tell me how she prepares them? I used to eat them raw as a kid, like a carrot.

  5. Every garden needs a robin. πŸ™‚

    I’ve eaten freeze-dried mealworms – they look like they should taste of Marmite but just taste like dust. They will go in Winter when food is short.

    Chilli mealworms and mealworms in chocolate are good, but not at the top of my list…
