I think of all the scenery you have done Jim, and it's a hard pick, the one that seems to appeal the most for it's simplicity is the one of the siding on the grade with the long grass and weeds, protruding through the ties. It's just a standout.

Necessity is the mother of invention. I've been trying to figure out how to hang my light switch on my control panel, such as it is. I thought about holes and wires, twist ties, and building a proper wooden holder. I went to the closet and came across a new soldering iron still in its package. I've use my original iron for a dozen years, so this one just sat. Looking closely at the package I figured out how to make my holder with just three screws!
