Thanks guys, all of you.

I added a layer of a sprinkling of Hudson & Allen "Forest Litter" which appears to be
nothing but ground up real leaves but they do add a bit of color and variety.

The Forest Litter does look quite realistic, Bob.

Looks good. The leaves and forest litter really set it off.

Bruce, Ray, and Jerry, thanks for your comments. I am pretty happy with the leaves and I most likely
should let it go at that but, wanting to try something new, I am going to try to give a
"suggestion" of the trees that left those leaves. I have some ideas but not sure if it will turn out
or ruin the entire model...........

Only one way to find out.

Bob

OK, for better or worse, I started on my "forest". There is no way I can model a forest
on that small base but I'll try to suggest a forest of trees. Here I added some twigs from
out back to represent the trunks of the larger trees. Next I will have to model at lease some
of the smaller bare branches.

Those 'trees' actually look quite good, Bob.

Bob, I was wondering how you were going to add trees. You pulled it off...the trees look great and really capture the late fall look.

Bob, those added trees and leaf litter, really bring this scene to life!
Nice work once again.

I'm really impressed with the visual impact of the trees in conjunction with the ground cover. Coming together nicely and I encourage you to continue down the path you're on.
