Bowtruckle is, apparently, a character for the Fantastic Beasts film, book, comic (?), I’m not sure which.
But this bendy little toy, seen in a local toy shop, looked like potential shoot material. So here she/he is – in a studio constructed version of what Bowtruckle’s home looks like (in my imagination!!)
I took the first images of this potato back in January ( Resting Seed Potato – 03 ), just after it sprouted ‘eyes’ and began to look a touch more interesting than just a plain spud. ( My apologies to the vegetable-lovers amongst you. )
Since then its sprouts, or shoots, have grown incredibly long! All this time the potato has been sitting in my garage with little TLC given to it – in fact, very little attention paid to it at all.
Recently however I noticed that it was collapsing in on itself, and it looked as though it was very much on its way out. So I took this final image before it was consigned to the food-waste recycling-box.
