i got a little work done on the scenery, first two layers are pretty much done except for the area inside the fence and the other side of the fence. the buildings and the fence are not affixed to the base. i'm leaving them removable to allow me to finish the scenery. (at least that scenery that can be done without the buildings in the way:
[edit] forgot to add the pics.











it's an optical illusion that there is a slope from the fence to the edge of the board. there isn't. it's as flat as a board. cuz it's a board.....

for mike:
mike, you asked me to send pics of our gardens to give you some ideas.





mislabeled as east garden, this is actually the west garden. a combination of phlox, zinnias, cone flowers, iris, lilies and black eyed susans, allysum and marigolds.

east garden:






tickseed, zinnias, dahlias, phlox, bee balm, marigolds, cone flowers, black eyed susans and more zinnias.

Kevin,

Youíve created a beautiful garden. Your mixing perennials with annuals is quite effective. I recent years Iíve been growing more zinnias to attract butterflies, including monarchs. I imagine you have to water certain plants. Your patio looks very inviting.

Your model continues to get better and better. The fence enhances the scene.

Mike

mike,
thanks. when i first dug out a row of juniper bushes and created the gardens, we went with all annuals, spending upwards of $400 every spring on flowers. after a few years of that i decided to start introducing perennials and now we just put a few annuals in every year. i water almost every night, and it's worth it. i've sprayed the yard for skeeters twice so far this year, and they are terrible. between 7 and 9 at we can't even step outside.
got i hate those little blood sucking.

i'm adding two more figures to the diorama and i need a little advise with this one.
he's pewter, and he's carrying a crate. does anyone have any suggestions for an adhesive that will keep him from falling on his crate?
i tried adding a picture of him but for some reason the software isn't allowing it tonight. anyway, he's o scale, pretty sure he's 1/43, he's pewter and he's carrying a crate. suggestions welcome.
thanks in advance....

An approach to securing figures is to drill a hole in one leg, insert a wire with a little superglue gel, and drill a hole in the scene where you want the figure. I do this in HO. Should work in O. I usually do not glue the figure in place in case I want to move it.

i'm a little concerned because with all the flowers in the back yard, we haven't seen a single bumblebee this year. i find that alarming.
got the front of the dio completed last night and started working on the left side. here's the front:

Hi Kevin, your backyard looks beautiful with all of your flowers in bloom.
Looks like a great space for a garden railroad!
Your diorama is also coming to life with your scenery work.
I don't see any chimneys on the structures, are they still to come?
