    Wow,Michelle do they use the same displays year after year?do they keep adding to it? I knew nothing about this,it very was interesting and enjoyable to see. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope you have a great weekend too.

    Just as amazing on day 2... to go where miniature architecture and landscaping have not gone before...

    Thanks also, Michelle, for including photos of the real structures following the views of the miniature versions. I appreciate the extra time and trouble you went to because I enjoyed scrolling back and forth in my amazement at what an awesome job the artists did.

    This is remarkably similar to the Wonderland Express at the Chicago Botanic Gardens, except the buildings are all Chicago landmarks, of course! But even the little "Ladybug" train is the same--it was always a favorite of my son's when he was younger. Thanks for sharing--I didn't know there was anywhere else that did a show like this!

    Amazing work and an amazing place! I would love to see it!

    Wonderfully done! My favourite photos are of the cathedral and the conservatory, both buildings fit so perfectly into their chosen locations. Can't imagine the number of hours of research, planning and construction it took to create this display.

    Amazing skill and accuracy in scale and detail. Do they keep the miniature buildings year after year?

    Wonderful work. As everyone has said it is amazing especially when you see the originals. Someone had a vision and they have reproduced them with such detail.

    I can't get over the details - and the materials. Now I can't remember if this is a yearly display or if this is a debut. I think I'll look up and try to find details of its construction. Amazing. It is the ultimate fairy garden city!
