I planed to tidy Snoozebury up this morning  :angel: ,but the idea flashed into my mind that it was a while since I had run any kettles on the layout so I got side tracked and this is the result.

It's amazing what you can do with those Chinese Ebay trees, I usually put a mix of green scatters in a plastic bag, spray the tree with 3M spray mount or similar, drop it in the bag and shake well.

I also unwind the branches from the trunk and use them for hedges, bushes, ivy on walls.

God for covering baseboard joins too

Now you don't

bend the wire end at 90 degrees stick in a hole and the foliage lays like a hedge, trim &/or bend into shape

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
off cuts  with spots of various coloured paint for garden flowers. (excuse the drunken chimneys, they didn't like being chucked in a bag)
