Please show me whatever you like

How about a picture with a wooden building, a stone roadway, and two trees?

Way to go John, just love when everything flows along in sequence.

Hmm I’m not sure that that comment was necessary!

Anyhow, a wood building containing more wood. Scene modelled by my late friend Hans Hubner.

Here is a scene with two trees:

That takes care of a wood building and two trees.

Please show me a scene with a stone roadway. Or... another scene with two trees or a wooden building would be OK as well.

How about all three in this bird's eye view of the town center of Willoughby, still under construction. Actually there are 7 trees and several wooden buildings with brick streets surrounding the Memorial Park. 
 
 
Show a green space (park, town square, etc) within a city or town.

I love the ballpark but am also a bit envious. I have plans to build a Little League ball park inside the curve at the end of the peninsula of my short line. I got bogged down a couple years ago and this past winter I had plans to get going again until a serious family issue has made my life hectic. I got almost nothing done this past winter and I usually don't get much done during the warm weather months. I'm going to try to find time to get some things done this summer but I have made the same vow for at least the last 15 years and it never happens. 
 
PS. I wonder what they used for ballplayers. I've been looking for years for HO scale Little Leaguers with no luck. Woodland Scenics have two sets of sandlot players but they aren't in uniform.

Two trees, if you don't count the little one in the middle, and a wooden building.

 
 
Continue with a green field as last requested please.

It's green and it's a field.

Please show me more range land or a farm field.

Kevin,

Are there any uniformed N scale ball players?

I feel your pain on slow progress, been waiting over two years to make an entry gate, waiting for time and the courage to tackle it.

Good luck,

Richard

In the west valley they grow grapes but in the east valley it's all orange groves.

Please show me trees, in an orchard, woods, or forest.

How about a curve on a hill?
