Donna's Arboretum

My thirteenth submission to the Monopoly City Streets design contest. It's called "Donna's Arboretum" and it's named for my friend Donna who owns Samuel's Florist in Burbank, California.

This model is a good example of when to use components. The building was built 1/4 of the way and then repeated. The trees repeat and so do the rocks (there is only one rock turned and resized to look like many) and the flowers (only one kind, dyed different colors) repeat as well.

The pine trees are made from a single ring of branches that repeats vertically and is shrunk each time. Each ring is made of one unit that repeats in a circle.
