Monday the 6th broke with tradition in that we had brilliant sunshine. In fact, it was so hot I got burned. We are way behind with our allotment because of all the previous bad weather, so, off we went to get things done. Tradition was broken a second time in that I took time out to do this sketch while my wife did all the planting. It was a novel if slightly guilty experience to sit and draw while Helen established runner beans and peas etc and is not, I hasten to add, how I would normally spend time there. She likes this picture but I'm not sure how many more times I will get away with such a leisurely morning!! Waterproof and water-soluble ink and watercolour on Daler 90lb NOT.
