Last Christmas we went to the New York Botanical Gardens to see the Holiday Train Show in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. It was wonderful, the setting was magnificent, all the landmarks are made of plant parts , bark ,leaves etc. Model trains zip around the buildings and over your head on the bridges dotted around.

    Although I don’t usually like things this traditional looking it’s incredible what these houses are made of. Floats facinate me for the same reason, though they’re more cheesy looking = my taste overall. But the effort that went into making all of these is astounding. Must have been overwhelming seeing them all in one spot.

    Thank you for the Camembert, always exciting. I know what you mean , I prefer floats and lots of colour, but the skill in making them considering the materials is fabulous. The overall effect was very pleasing though and certainly a very Christmassy experience.
