Plasticine Dreams

James May (of Top Gear fame) is trying to build an entire plasticine garden at Britain’s annual Chelsea Flower Show.

This is so odd to me, I hardly know what to think about it. I mean, on the one hand, I can’t keep but asking, “IS HE FOR REAL?” (Ha! Actually, he’s not, he’s for plasticine if you think about it.) But, part of me secretly wishes he’d make a plasticine bird of paradise. I mean, I can’t help but wonder what that would look like, and there’s no way I’d ever make one myself, so that just has me thinking, “Come on, James, you can do it! Go, Captain Slow!”

Maybe while doing all that “high speed” driving he does for Top Gear, he bumped his head? (Then again, a lily of the valley might be nice.)

James, you’re such a freak, we love you. (A plasticine hydrangea might be kind of sweet this time of year, don’t you think?)

Oh, ok. Here’s my final say on the matter. James, if you’re out there buddy. methinks that, right about now, the oh-so-photogenic calla lily is going to be your new best friend. I mean, come on, just think of how easy those’d be to make out of plasticine. (And now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to go and pay the plasticine pizza dude so I can go and have some plasticine dinner.)

[Don’t even get me started on the marmalade skies.]

Until next time…

    Great photo……….funny post………….plastic toys of all kinds can be placed in the toaster/oven on low heat and melted into wonderful shapes…keep doors and windows open………if you are quick and nimble, you can press a safety pin into the still soft backside of these and make cool brooches.
