Today will start sunny but then icreasing cloudiness this afternoon. The high will be near 3C(37F).
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low of -5C(23F).
-------------------------------------------
esterday I added a tiny pitch fork to the settlers collection of tools. I'll have to I'll have to think about carving a small horse drawn plow to break the prairie sod. That will be a challenge!
If I can't get any ideas for grass for the dioramam I may change the setting to a desert. That should be easier to replicate with sand glued to plywood along with a few small stones and a cotton ball shredded and painted.
I think I'm getting carried away on the project but at least the young ladies are safe and don't have to worry about an old gezzer chasing them down the street.

Is there anyone around who builds dollhouses or works with model railroads? They buy their grass in sheets, like this.

If someone had some extra I'll bet you could get some trimmings. It's nice stuff. ;)

Hey Tony, soon Easter will be here and Easter baskets are full of packing material that would work great for Prairie Grasses. Its already shredded so it would only have to be cut to the proper length then glued on your board. It comes in different colors too. Save your cotton balls for clouds...

Oh God he has me hooked on this project too...LOL

Have a great day Tony...
