A favorite animated film of mine is "The Man Who Planted Trees". In it, a man spends a lifetime planting trees, and in different ways, affecting thousands of lives by doing so. I likely will not affect thousands of lives, but I have spent the last couple of sunny afternoons planting trees on my layout.
I am a bit timid about certain things, making changes to my layout among them. I note that my previous blog entry said I painted the layout was in July and now in November I can finally say I have taken the next step.
This past weekend, at GTE (Puyallup, WA), I brought my mountain layout, a bottle of Woodland Scenics turf powder, a bottle of white glue, and a spray bottle.
