Prieserman looks like Elmer Gantry -- er, Burt Lancaster!

The trees, shrubs and grapevine plants are all so convincing, I don't think I'll ever buy ready-made ones.  Got to try your techniques, Jos!

God knows I'd be more than satisfied with those trees representing Southern Pines on my layout.  Now if I can just get someone to build them for me . . .   ;)
