Re: Back to my garden....

You've done tours before and I'm sure you'll be able to bring it all
together.  Personally, I would never leave myself open to that much stress,
but you seem to be fine with it.  If I were to be part of a train garden
tour, though, I would want the main parts, like the train and the stream
already in place before ever agreeing.
