We want to thank everyone that visited the tour layouts on Saturday! What a great day. I believe the visitor count was over 300! Thank you to the three tour hosts who opened their gardens and all those from the OGRS club that helped with the day.
We had several visitors that asked about the small trees that we have on our layout and I have included a link to the Funtiques Market – Green Gallery in Ozark Missouri. They have several “miniature” trees that work great in Garden train layouts and also in fairy gardens! We also had a lot of questions regarding the difference between dwarf and miniature plants. I found a great article at Two Green Thumbs website that explains it very well.
