After some worrying that it wouldn’t arrive in time, my wife’s gift to me for Father’s Day arrived exactly when it needed to. With all the hints that had been thrown around and the concern about the delivery, I asked if she would give it to me a day early.

It’s a fantastic build (actually two fantastic builds, put together) from Chris McVeigh, who makes some of the most fascinating LEGO builds I’ve ever seen. If you aren’t following him on Twitter, I recommend you do so.

On his site, you can read the build instructions for his creations, or for many builds, you can purchase a kit with all the needed parts. This one is a stone garden, and then a tree for the center.

It’s such a fitting gift; it looks great in my office area and it matches the flowering cherry tree we have in the front yard, right out the window I look out every day when I’m working.
