Bento #341

I made this one for a picknick on the easter weekend already, but I forgot to get the pictures from my camera until now.

…we have a Michelangelo.


* I never learned the colours of the Ninja Turtles when I was a kid because I thought they were interchangeable just like Huey, Dewey and Louie (Tick, Trick and Track in German). I had to look it up on Wiki to see what I should name them.
** It’ll be a while before I can breed a blue chili, I fear…

I drew this comic last year, when he was just growing.

Now Donatello is a lovely bush, and has some children of its own:
