My World Tuesday




Photobucket

Photobucket


Here are two buildings from the Holiday Miniature Train Exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden. The top photo is the Folies Bergere Theater, 1917, at 210 West 46th Street, Manhattan. The second photo is St. Patrick's Cathedral located on 5th Avenue at 51st Street.

These are just 2 of the more than 100+ buildings built by the Garden for their Miniature Train display. The buildings are all made from plant material.

To see more of this exhibition go to Ruby Tuesday

What a novel idea for a Bot.Garden!
Much nicer than gnomes.

Wow those are incredible!

I'm amazed at the detail, accuracy, and precision. It must have taken a long, long time to create those.
