as Chester put the finishing touches to the last egg he noticed a few blobs of left over colours,
so he pulled out some paper and
scratched out some air plants with his dew claws ...
using his toe pads coloured in some nice petals and blossoms
daubed his tiny heart-shaped nose into the palette and made a Loving Tree
and last of all, to round things up, because painting does get tiring when you are dabbling all day,
he splashed out two pigeons because they are his favourite bird,
and he absolutely loves to watch them in the park, as they strut and coo and peck and flutter
..... and one day ....
will fly him around the city
for a breath-taking tour of the sights
(he's always wanted to fly, but never been brave enough to ask)
and Chester will paint her portrait in return, and maybe even a few of her eggs
