NYC New York Botanic Garden christmas train

Do you love a holiday mini village?  Here is what I want to know, why do the holiday’s bring out the mini village builders in us?   I’m not a village builder these days, though I have to admit I come from some hard-core (legendary) builders and I have spent some significant hours urban planning, installing tiny trees and spreading fake snow.

If I can get my hands on a copy, I will share with you the insanity that goes down at my parents house – it is certainly worth a post.   But until then, I am enjoying the version that the New York Botanic Garden created for the holidays.  It’s made completely of plant material!!

If you are in NYC area, you can see it in person until Jan 2nd.  I wish I had been able to spare the time to visit when I was there for Thanksgiving.
