Sunday Photo Fun 2/9/20

"What are you doing with that thing?", she quipped as I was unloading the goodie bag from Hobby Lobby.  Trees!  Lots of them.  I need canopy on a hillside, and to selectively compress a forest.  This floral ball has a lot of texture, and reminded me of pawpaw trees.  If I were to place them towards the front of the layout, I'd be tempted to cover them with ground foam, but for now, they pass the "good 'nuf" test.

Fife... Looking good, as always you are the artist! Are those trees made of the same material on the WM layout in the station? I really liked the stations fall folliage.

Buckeye - I don't believe they are the same (the station layout used a lot of ground foam clumps).  This floral ball is more flexible, and allowed me to simply hot glue, press into place, and move on.  To place each tree in, stem by stem, would've caused all kinds of back pain.
