Planetarium

the new york botanical garden train show is a really special event. the trains are terrific, but the recreations of local landmarks by paul busse using orange slices, cinnamon sticks, pods, pine cones, twigs, leaves, bark and all things natural are incredible. the kids are just the cutest as they wait to see the trains come through the tunnels. this year was the most fun. hope you enjoy your weekend!

xo, cindy

Amazing! I can't believe all this was made with "organic" materials... Must have taken ages to build!

WOW, those are incredible. We always had a train around our Christmas tree growing up. They always put a smile on my face!

That is so beautiful! I just discovered your blog today and all I can think about is the movies and sights you see in New York that are far removed from the choices in Indiana!

Love them! I had a dream I went to NY last night, and that I never wanted to come back. Maybe this is a sign???? :)
