Hi Guys!

I'm starting my first shows of 'Blooming Amazing, my new flower show and in two months and I'd love your suggestions and thoughts on the following effects.

The show is about growing flowers and will be performed at a shopping centre and a flower festival in early october.

1) Appearing Spade: I have a bag rolled up under my arm. I unroll it and out comes a giant spade. Essentially, this is Wayne Roger's Missing Spade without the banner.

2) Beach Bucket Lota: I tip water (with blue dye) out of the bucket into a frosted plastic water can. I end up with four times the capacity of the bucket in the can. I'd love people's suggestions on presentation and technique for the Lota Bucker

3) Growing Seeds: I bring up a children who I pluck three green sponge seeds from their ear. (must be dirty if seeds grow there!) They wear a Barry Mitchell Sun Hat and shine a torch on one of seeds to make it grow. The torch stops working because the seed and battery have switched places (I have the battery and the seed is IN the previously functioning torch) We try again and the seeds triple in size (Barry Mitchell's growing seeds)

4) I make a square circle worm farm (the square is the farm and the tube is brown to be the soil). Spring worms jump out and a little flower grows.

5) Using the giant seeds I make a ten foot flower grow! The flower is a 3 foot wide spring tissue paper flower and the stem is a green appearing pole complete with flower!

The whole show will be 30 minutes long and will also feature my rabbit (for some reason I have not decided yet...)

So...what do you think?

That's what I was think.

Perhaps the production box is a new "PEST PROOF POT" That is MEANT to stop bugs and rabbits getting in. But the rabbit gets in anyway?

Ok you have a perspex box with grass in you put the lid on and all the grass has gone, who could it be that's eaten the grass it must be the rabbit lift up lid and the rabbit is sittng in the perspex box.
I will try to think the name of this trick but you would have to modify the box eg the grass part. Its a it like a dove pan but square and you hold onto the gimmick with you fingers.

I've laid it all out and I think I have too many large props. With the rabbit production, the watering can, the worm farm and the giant flower pot, I'm just not packing smart enough.
