Plastic Fantasy Plants True! ..................But Lots of Them by BB

Out shopping today with Mrs B,i said, "i`ll have one of each of these."                                     
"People hang them outside during the winter", said a rather confused Mrs B,because she had not a clue of that which i had seen.                                                                                                              
i am always looking at the make up of things,because i like to realise other uses for the oddest of things. As far as Mrs B,was concerned  as plans based upon my ideas unfold she always become aware of good value for the money.                                                                                                    

i wanted these for a fantasy add on to my existing plastic plants.                                                              
Yes of course i have lots more different ones,and it was by their use i was able to photo shoot 
The Jungle Photograph and The Time Table.                                                                                  

So i now have another five plants that i can well use in playing out very tall tales.

i like these,because best there is no  need to water them.

So here are the four smaller plant balls. These were stuck into a pot,so they were £2.99 each. So a Pound  more  than the large ball that first caught my eye of imagination. However they have lots of makings to their build up,so will yield quite a good crop for the outlay in cash.

                                                    That larger ball after plucking.

Reminds me of preparing Chickens for the oven when i was naught but a little sprat!

130 Plant-lets from that one  larger ball. Price £1.99   So still plenty more to come from the plucking of the others...........Magic!

These can be used to stick into small jungle type bases.

My entire table is often  used for a huge jungle feature using blu tac to fix them into place,and when used in conjunction with other homemade props,soon my little friends arrive upon the scene,and story`s soon develop.

From Thin Air

It had been a good day for Fred and MayBell,they had been exploring the garden outside wondering what sort of flower bulbs Mrs B,had put into all those clay pots that she had filled for the Autumn  Winter and Spring colour.    " Well most certainly most would be  low wattage but bright bulbs",Fred said to MayBell.____ " Fred,don`t talk daft!" _____ "Well MayBell,i overheard BB,say to Mrs B,we must replace those old bulbs with high output but low wattage day light bulbs." ______ " Fred,you sure do amaze me at the oddest of times." _____ " Thanks MayBell," the little fellow said as he did a figure of eight revolving twirl.                                                                                                                 

A short while passes them by never to return,and they enter the house in Fiddle Wood by way of the small dog flap near the back door.    Fred being run down needed recharging but the house was empty as they arrived high  upon the work top in the kitchen where Fred`s upgraded charger was always plugged in.                                                                                                                                                

"We must have a look at that Fred "   declared MayBell                                                                

It was upon seeing something quite new upon my tiny painting table that they                                  
decided  to investigate the odd arrangement that had sprouted out from the shine of it.                                                               

"What`s this then Fred?" asked a curious MayBell. ____ "It`s a heat shield from a Dalek Space Cruiser, MayBell." _____ "No i mean those strange new plants  Fred,"  ____ However, Fred was more interested in the item  he and she were now standing upon.                                                                                                         

MayBell gave the plants a sniff or too,then proclaimed them to be plastic. "BB`s, been shopping again",she said to her faithful Pal._______" Yes MayBell,they are blu tac`ed  to the table.
"Now then Fred,you were saying something about this odd shaped thing beneath us?" __ " Never mind MayBell it will only serve to frighten you",  said the Unit F.R.E.D,better known to all here as Fred._____ " Did it fall from thin air Fred?"______ " O`, no MayBell,but it did fall from a hot one."

As the two shuffle upon their way of going Fred said,"I must mention to BB,of our find".___"Whatever for Fred?"_______ "To see if there is a Part Two,we have to worry about."

                                                              A Complete Plucked Update

i hate waste so i wonder if i could make something out of these?

   "Perhaps use them to make much larger plants BB?" Our little friends both replied.

 334 Plants but some are made up of "Fours!"  So cutting these free for making up war gaming bases there are 960 plant-lets for under £14.00 UK Sterling !
I recently saw 12 plants priced at £11.99 true they were laser cut 20mm scale.
i look at the bigger picture because i have 5 Foot Tables to set up for photo shoots,but i want low money paid out and real value for it . i   break the rules of scales ,because fantasy figures ,and plants are like Spiders_______________They come in many sizes!

                                                    So long until next time BB


having decided upon a little example  of a jungle i set to 
and began one little knowing what was  about to happen           

Fred and MayBell, snooping upon Table Top Mountain, stumbled upon these three that made squeaking noses and which have snapping jaw`s with hungry shape teeth. Fred, sees  them as kind`da playful little creatures. However MayBell, does not. Ignoring MayBells warnings Fred, continues upon this playful path while his complex oidar system is analyzing every added emotion to do with such fun.    

Fred`s mainframe computer has finally identified them as being  Seli`docorc`s,creatures from some  reversed parallel universe.

As Fred,is amusing himself with these other active life forms,MayBell, is getting even more worried about these unknown playthings she has no clear recollection of at all.

Things are about to get far worse,
because Archibald and Priscilla, are frantically looking for their young.

         Whatever will the outcome be? Perhaps i leave that to your own imagination.

The five plants worked out fine in creating a tiny stretch of jungle for my recent acquired new toys. Which are all well and good for a fun loving Beano Boy like me.     BB

    1. There`s lots more fantasy to come Phil. BB

    2. I don´t believe it!!! Not a week ago I found (actually found, no cash payed) a one of These things. I didn´t know what it was for until someone posted on a blog what it was..and now you´ve done it as well :-D
      I still haven´t pulled mine apart, it´s quite tactile, nice to bounce in your Hands.

    3. Hi Paul,it was a couple of years ago when i began to use this type of stuff for my story`s that i wanted to write and film.
      While out shopping today i bought some more so i have a staggering collection of over 4.000 fantasy plants for my photo shoot Sci-Fi Projects. All bought for the princely sum of £12.00 UK Stirling! The Pound might have dropped but i always get my moneys worth.
      I remember recently looking at a few laser cut furn`s perhaps 12 to a box,on the toy market place recently priced at a £11.00 Which is alright for a couple of tiny bases,but i have two five foot tables in Beano Castle,so i need lots of jungle mixed up stuff for my illusions shown on the grand scale. Thanks for commenting Paul,it helps keep me motivated when posting my mad cape ideas.

      Greetings from the ever changing
      Autumn leaves of Fiddle Wood, Norwich UK.......... BB
