Mike, our contributor from Japan, published a photo essay on a lovely hydrangea garden: Treasure in a Flower Garden: A Photo Essay

Anu, our contributor from India, visited a miniature railway museum in Pune (Maharashtra, India).

My fascination with model railways goes back a long way. From the time I read in books about people setting up their own model railways in their lofts to when I grew older and heard of actual miniature villages with working models of trains running through them. Unfortunately, the nearest I could get to a miniature train was one going round and round in a track.
