After the severe spring rains that left water standing in my basement and causing no end of grief in the layout room I decided that the best way to get out of the doldrums was to do something - anything on the layout. I have had boxes and "stuff" stacked off the floor and on the benchwork for quite a while. But last week I finally finished sorting things and repacking into Plastic containers that will not absorb water And since there was so much water around the layout I thought that it was time to have some "growing" things. I need lots of trees for the background and Tysons several threads on "tree-making" fit the bill. Here is the result of a couple of nights work. About 150 individual trees are on this little part of the woods. I wanted to see how it would look against the backdrop and also how I liked the technique. Good on both counts. Tyson, tree making is good therapy. Jon- take note. It makes the little plastic people go away.
